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.
This year, the theme of the African Sport Summit will be: the "Accra Legacy”
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, Ministers of Youth and Sports of the Alliance and the African Union are invited to participate, focus on realistic solutions for fairer, more inclusive and sustainable sport.
Through this event, stakeholders will aim to build a community of thought and action to facilitate the transfer of knowledge between the Alliance and their Member-States, between Ministers and investors and between champions, experts and young people.
