"An embodiment of a rural futurist vision, Okere City is the first sustainable rural city in Uganda. A village boy at heart, Ojok will share his vision for the future: to spark a movement that not only inspires but also equips talented, skilled, and passionate Africans and other people of black descent to assemble in the African countryside with the vast knowledge offered and to embrace with radical openness the opportunities to supersede the ceilings of urbanity."
