As well as four days of thought-provoking sessions, inspiring plenaries and many connections made, the Forum team brought in new ways to extend participation. The Digital Pass was a way of sharing the knowledge and insight revealed during the sessions to be accessible to all, for free!

Arguments made by both sides included social media and its threat to fair democracy, to the innovative tech revolution happening across sub-Saharan Africa.
