We are pleased to announce that the Forum on Astronomy in Africa 2022 will take place on 25 October 2022. Please mark the dates in your calendar and stay tuned for further announcements!
The forum will be fully virtual and bring together members of our community of astronomers, enthusiasts, outreach and education specialists, and policymakers. Its purpose is to maintain momentum towards GA2024, building on the work of the last forum (held in October 2021) and to allow updates on preparations, Vision 2024 and other projects.
You are welcome to view the presentations from the last forum, and we would like you to get in touch if you wish to update your presentation with new information or anything you might have missed last year. The links to those recorded presentations are on last year’s programme.
