Published: 2 May 2023

Africa is at the heart of our world, but its diverse cultural and economic influence has often been overlooked. Yet the world has begun to take note, says Prof. Karl Moore, who led this year’s Hot Cities of the World Tour to Accra, Ghana and Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The annual tour event has been bringing McGill students and alumni to international cities that are experiencing economic growth since 2009, but this year’s tour was the first to go forward in three years. “Africa has a young population, and vast resources. It is very important for the world’s future. The slogan of this trip is Taking the Future to the Future. That is young people to where the future of the world is going to take place, Africa meets the test.”
