What is our guiding question?

Imagining the future green hydrogen value chain and ecosystem in African countries! What are the scenarios that we can see today? Which ones are preferred options? And which decisions do we need to take today to get to the future we want? How can we ensure that digital startups and local companies benefit from the hydrogen industry? These are our guiding questions explored at all stages of the ii2030 Green Hydrogen edition.

The participants will playfully explore different futures to uncover hidden or implicit assumptions about the future and the system dynamics. By increasing their "future literacy", participants also broaden their options to act in the present. In addition, this understanding will help stakeholders align on future changes in their sector.
