Focusing on DIYBio & Sustainability in 2020

Africa OSH Summit 2020 will be held in Yaounde, Cameroon, from 14 to 16 May 2020, under the theme ‘Growing the Do-It-Yourself & Do-It-Together (DIY/DIT) Culture for Community Transformation’. It will be hosted by Mboa Lab.

The summit will host workshops, discussions and conferences on making, hacking and DIYBio for a wide range of stakeholders to engage with the processes of design, co-creation, problem solving. Additionally participants will be engaged on how the open science & hardware movement can contribute to sustainable change in Africa. Ultimately we aim to achieve an ecosystem for innovation that is locally adapted, culturally relevant, technologically feasible, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable
