2022 was the first time that Africa had hosted the World Science Forum and it was an incredible opportunity to bring together some of the key players of the INGSA ecosystem in Africa.
The INGSA Delegation to the WSF included:
- INGSA President, Prof Remi Quirion
- 10 members of the INGSA-Africa Steering Committee including Chair, Dr Doyin Odubanjo
- Five mentees from the INGSA-Africa Science Advice Skills Development Program (SASDP)
- Members of the University of Rwanda who are leading the development of an INGSA Hub in Rwanda
INGSA also supported the Media for Social Justice Fellowships that were awarded by the World Federation of Science Journalists, FRQ, and South African Department of Science & Technology
The INGSA delegation contributed to the International Science Council Global Knowledge Forum and was involved in the Cape Town Declaration on Science for Social Justice that was delivered at the Forum.
