Advancements in technological innovations are increasingly disrupting democracies across Africa, with the emergence of an empowered electorate and decentralized access to governance. We’ve seen this play out at different levels, through citizen-led social movements such as Nigeria’s #EnoughisEnough and #EndSARS protests; Ghanaians’ clamor to #FixTheCountry; and the world turning #BlueForSudan.

Now more than ever, social media has the power to change not just the message, but the dynamics of nation building. Through the use of social media in elections and governance, political participation has become less private and more susceptive to public perception. How do we channel this social consciousness from online to offline citizen engagement, with the objective of influencing electoral processes that truly represent the voice of the people?

Ultimately, the session will aim to broker a stakeholder centric solution to a pressing challenge, leveraging the Africa NXT platform and StateCraft Inc.’s experience in driving good governance and sustainable citizen participation programmes.
