The AviaDev Ambassadors - inspiring the next generation

It is a commonly accepted fact that one huge item holding back Aviation development in Africa is the availability of skilled human capital.

Whilst we cannot create the jobs, AviaDev Africa can provide a platform for the next generation to share their ideas on how to improve the fortunes of the industry.

Therefore, we ran a competitive process whereby candidates had to submit a three-minute video outlining their solution to develop a more prosperous industry. We then selected three Ambassadors and supported their travel and accommodation, plus offered them real work experience as members of the AviaDev Africa onsite team.

The experience culminated in the three taking the stage to present their solutions for a brighter African aviation future. The full session can be here.

This is a commitment we have made and the Ambassador session is now a pillar of every AviaDev event.
