Forgotten Rennaisance

This Saturday I'll be interviewing Simunza Muyangana on Zambia Blog Talk Radio. Simunza is a self described “communication and technology enthusiast,” and he works as Digital Media consultant in Zambia. He co-founded the popular African Urban Online magazine – Broken Hill Magazine (BHMagazine), which debuted in 2000.

Most recently Simunza has been involved in organising and hosting Zambia’s first TEDx event – TEDxLusaka. TED is a non-profit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started as a one-off conference in 1984 and has since grown to a global set of conferences. The TEDx program is centred on local, self-organized events that bring people together to stimulate dialogue and share ideas through TED-like experiences.

TEDxLusaka took place on November 4, 2011 and was held under the theme “Forgotten Rennaisance.” The objective was “to ignite a discussion among the thought leaders of the current generation by reminding them of some aspects that mark our common identity. Have our conversations changed over time? Have we made strides with regards to women enjoying their rights? How do we raise leaders for the future? What are the stories we tell of ourselves? Where have we achieved in the world of science and innovation?”

Listen in if you can  at 6 a.m. PST, 9 a.m. EST, 14 Hrs GMT, 16 Hrs CAT. I'll also be sharing the podcast after the show airs.
