A media workshop was held a day prior to the conference to engage media from the region.

The workshop was facilitated by a renowned media expert from South Africa, Ms. Cynthia Tshaka with presenters from different fields and regions of Africa including Dr. Bella Bello from Ghana, Mr George Nange, Kenya, Prof. Richard Rooney form the University of Botswana and Media expert Ms. Claudia Ekai from Kenya.

  • Mastering gender sensitive reporting

  • Presentation skills in sport
  • Sport as a tool for achieving SDG’s
