We are organizing a cultural exchange trip that is primarily focused on creating pathways for African Americans to re-invest in Africa regeneratively, without perpetuating the problems capitalism perpetuates. Our Cultural Exchange invites Africans from across the continent and U.S. cooperative members and supporters to begin dialogue for a co-created equitable development policy for Ghanaian economic development and beyond.
Dialogue is the key to our trip; it is only through dialogue that two distanced peoples with shared roots can begin to find synergies between themselves, and only through dialogue can new arrivals to Africa know what Africans want for Africa and how to help steward their visions. Co-created equitable development policy can only be built upon discussion, exchange of ideas, and information.
The growing American cohort is a group of cooperative-minded people seeking to learn how Ghanaians in particular, and Africans in general, structure their collective efforts, to offer our experience and expertise to local projects, and to engage critical conversation regarding international cooperative exchange of resources. Attendees will form relationships that bloom into cultural content, import/export agreements, thought partnership, and real estate development.
