The African Sport Summit
THE "ACCRA LEGACY"
Accra, Ghana - March 7-9, 2024
As an introduction to the 13th African Games , the African Sport Summit – The « Accra Legacy » – is an opportunity to question the contribution of sport to the development of African societies, but above all to consider tangible solutions for the future.
The first day will be dedicated to bringing together African sport stakeholders in an African Sport Summit. Participants will question the legacy of the past, present and future African Games and more generally sports mega-events. They will deepen the issue of sustainability in sport through infrastructure, education, training and youth employment which places national sports policies at the center of the debate. Questions of the contribution of the private sector and the redistribution of wealth will inevitably arise.
The second day will be dedicated to sealing an alliance by hosting a Summit with Ministers of Youth and Sports of the African Union and other regions of the world. They will consider practical and realistic solutions to advance fairer, more inclusive and sustainable sport in their country. The questions of the development of sport and the development through sport in Africa will be challenged.
More than just a conference, the African Sport Summit – The « Accra Legacy » is the design of a legacy in the form of an action plan which will be the subject of evaluations over the course of other African Sport Summits. To achieve this objective, for this first edition of the African Sport Summit , Ministers of Youth and Sports of the Alliance and the African Union will be invited to participate to the Open General Assembly of the Alliance.
Under the chairmanship of Honorable Mustapha Ussif, Minister of Youth and Sports of Ghana and during the Open General Assembly of the Alliance, Ministers will select their Host Country, appoint their Secretary General, ratify their Charter and decide on the future of this intergovernmental organization which finances infrastructure projects and programs of its Member States.
The third day will be devoted to meetings between stakeholders to transform the « Accra Legacy » into projects to be financed.
By focusing on finding realistic solutions for fairer, more inclusive and sustainable sport, we are building a community of thought and action to facilitate the transfer of knowledge between the Alliance and their Member States, the African Union and their Member-States, between countries and investors and between champions, experts and young people.
We look forward to thinking, working and contributing to the well-being and development of young people through sport, and more generally to socially and economically bring changes in Africa.
