Join me and others at Barcamp Ho 2013 #bcho

This Saturday, I will be attending my third Barcamp Ho. Why do I go to Barcamps in Ghana? It's a good chance to see more of Ghana. More of its sights and scenes. More of its people. More of its young people who are ingenious, innovative and inspiring. More of the positive things and synergized energies towards making Ghana a better place. You should attend Barcamps in Ghana for some of the same reasons.

If you know anyone in Ho or the Volta region, you shouldn't let them miss this event. We're building a nationwide (+ Diaspora) networked community of change makers, doers and entrepreneurs and there must be a community of these people in Ho.

Big ups to the organizers +Courage Christson Tetteh +Ousman Saidy +Eric Tackie Tawiah Ankrah +Gameli Adzaho and those championing it including +Ali Bukari Maiga +Seyram Freddy Ahiabor and co as well as all members of the +Barcamp Ghana team.

Here is the press release for +Barcamp Ho 2013.

Barcamp Ho 13 is a free networking forum bringing people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue on Ho, Ghana and beyond. It will take place on October 26, 2013 at the SRC Auditorium of Ho Polytechnic. The theme for this year is "Transforming our Communities: New Attractions, New Culture, New Champions". This Barcamp hopes to assemble stakeholders to network, build a supportive enterprising community and partner to build together.

Barcamp Ho 2013 follows 24 successful BarCamps in Ghana organized by the GhanaThink Foundation as part of its Barcamp Ghana project. It
will be a showcase of how Ghana’s youth are taking charge of its development and how they can be spurred on to do more. Using new champions of development in the Volta Region, with a new culture of doing and creating change, the Barcamp would focus on new attractions to drive the Volta Region forward.
The Barcamp will feature multiple user-generated breakout sessions about business, social entrepreneurship, technology and development, alongside topics relevant to the Northern Region and beyond. There will be a speed mentoring session where mentors will give insights and answers to questions from attendees. Various Ho leaders will be on a panel that will center on the theme.
