It’s the final day of FASTAfrica action week. We have been blown away by the activity and enthusiasm and feel proud to have been able to support so many local activities in a small way. The fight for FAST Internet is local, regional and international, and we need to keep thinking of ways to boost each others efforts and learn what strategies work.
But first: today’s events include, a stakeholder meeting on improving Internet speeds with the Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) in Nigeria, a cybercrime awareness meeting with Actions for Development in Cameroon, and filling of questionnaires and petitions by Open Foundation West Africa in Ghana.
Intellect9ja is hosting an event for young “inventors, solution seekers, and web controllers” in Nigeria, and activities are wrapping up in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Congo and Nigeria. In Germany, there will be a FASTAfrica picnic for the leaders of tech hubs, fab labs, maker spaces of the Global Innovation Gathering on the last day of their annual meeting.
