Barcamp Sunyani 2013 is here this Saturday! #bcsyi

 I've started losing count of how many Barcamps we've done in Ghana. The most recent one, +Barcamp Ho was the 25th one held in 2008 as part of the +Barcamp Ghana project by the +GhanaThink Foundation. And we just keep on going. This Saturday, I'd be in arguably the most likeable town (to me) in Ghana - Sunyani. Join me at +Barcamp Sunyani and let's energize our resource base to act. +Barcamp Sunyani is happening at the new University of Energy and Natural Resources in Sunyani.

See the press release below. Barcamp Sunyani 2013 is a free networking forum bringing people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue on Sunyani, Ghana and beyond. It will take place on November 9, 2013 at the University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani. The theme for this year is the "Energizing our resource base to act". This Barcamp hopes to assemble stakeholders to network, build a supportive enterprising community and partner to build together.

The GhanaThink Foundation has successfully organized 25 BarCamps in Ghana. BarCamp Sunyani 2013 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. There will be a focus on channeling the present energies around entertainment into positive developments and progress for Sunyani and surrounding areas as well.

The Barcamp will feature multiple user-generated breakout sessions about business, social entrepreneurship, technology and development, alongside topics relevant to the Brong-Ahafo Region and beyond. There will be a speed mentoring session where mentors will give insights and answers to questions from attendees. Various Sunyani leaders will be on a panel that will center on the theme.
