Our Values

As a collaborative platform, Future Africa’s mode of operating is guided by principles of common purpose and shared value. Future Africa has a wide network of collaborators from the University of Pretoria, other universities in South Africa and the continent, as well as the global academy. These collaborators contribute to Future Africa in various ways such as sharing ideas, offering advice, providing expertise, leading research and training activities, all while utilising the resources of Future Africa to advance transformative research in their home institutions.

In everything we do, Future Africa safeguards the values of:

  • Excellence and professionalism
  • Inclusivity and diversity
  • Creativity and open mindedness
  • Transparency and integrity
  • Organisational sustainability

Future Africa spearheads innovation by deploying transformative research, informing and supporting policy and public action for equitable and sustainable African societies, and inspiring science-based sustainability transformations elsewhere in the world.

Future Africa focuses on the future of Africa in a global context.
