All Regional Barcamps have been impressive, the national one will be a blast
In 2010, three different regional Barcamp events were organised across the country. This was in response to feedback received after Barcamp Ghana 2009 held at the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST).
The 18th of September, 2010 saw the first ever regional Barcamp event: Barcamp Kumasi at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). Barcamp Kumasi sought to bring together natives and residents of Kumasi to discuss, share ideas and network in the effort to stimulate development in the township. The theme was "Collaboration: The Key for Opportunity and Development".
BarCampAccra 2010, took place on October 2nd, 2010 at the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) campus at 20 Aluguntuguntu Street in East Legon, Accra. The theme is be “Creating wealth and employment in a challenging environment”.
BarCamp Takoradi 2010 was held at the Takoradi Technical Institute (TTI) campus in Takoradi, Ghana on November 27, 2010. The theme will be “Leading & Entreprising in an Oil & Technology Fuelled Economy”. BarCamp Takoradi built on the success of Ghanaian BarCamp events to ignite Sekondi/Takoradi & Western Region's focused discussions and actions in order to bring about much-needed change.
On December 18th Barcamp Ghana will bring on board many of Ghana's industry leaders to open up their sectors from their perspectives. Attendees will have the privilege of sitting in the same break-out sessions with these mentors and discuss issues pertaining to the industries on board. Barcamp Ghana is a free event, you can register on the eventbrite page.
All Barcamps have been organised by GhanaThink, an Africa-focused think-tank that seeks to mobilize and deploy African diasporean talent for the primary benefit of Ghana, and consequently of Africa and the whole world.
