IMAGO AFRICA CONFERENCE 2021 THE SCIENCE OF HUMAN CONNECTION
30 September - 3 October 2021
Under the theme of Human Connectedness- an African perspective, leading social scientists, researchers and practitioners who work within a relational paradigm will offer their insights on how we are to understand and develop the science of human connection in our changing world.
Human Connectedness – an African Perspective
2020 has actualized our need for meaningful and satisfying human connection, co-operation, and worldwide peace. In the western world, the mental, emotional and physical health of the individual is deemed primary to their wellbeing. In Africa, wellbeing has been informed by a relational paradigm, the most well-known of this being the concept of “Ubuntu” which is part of an isiZulu phrase “Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu” meaning “I am because you are”, or more literally “A person is a person through other people”.
We look forward to a time of meaningful connection with you.
Imago Africa, in partnership with Imago Relationships Worldwide, aims to facilitate sustainable relational peace and inclusive human connectedness in multiple contexts both locally and globally. Our program features developing young researchers and social scientists as well as leading experts in the field of relational dynamics. Under the theme Human Connectedness – an African perspective, our speakers, panellists and presenters will focus on uniquely African contributions.
