Barcamp Accra 2013 by GhanaThink
December 23, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (WET)
BarCamp Accra 2013 is a free networking event to bring people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue about Accra, Ghana and beyond. The event shall be held on December 23 at the World Bank office. The theme is “Exercising Ethics to Engineer Excellence”. This Barcamp event will be the 28th organized by the GhanaThink Foundation, as part of its Barcamp Ghana program which is building a network of change makers, doers and entrepreneurs.
BarCamp Accra 2013 will focus on corruption and ethics. It would highlight ethical leaders and ethics in every sphere of Ghanaian life. Corruption has been a big theme in Ghana this year, and a lot of us have read and listened to media reports in anger and disappointment. After the initial reactions fade away, we realize that attitudes of corruption and dishonesty are deeply entrenched in our society, and we wonder what we can do about it as ordinary Ghanaians.
