We look forward to welcoming you virtually to the African Leadership Academy Model African Union’s (ALAMAU) nineth session as we continue to identify solutions to challenges facing the continent, forging strong and long-lasting relationships, and bringing together driven youth from across Africa and beyond.
Book as a school group or individual participant for the online conference on 23 – 27 March 2022.
The ALAMAU was established in 2013 as a platform for young leaders to develop implementable solutions to African challenges through a format inspired by the Model United Nations and the African Union.
This year’s ALAMAU2022 theme is 20 Years of the AU: Propelling Vision Toward Action – a topic motivated by the twentieth birthday of the African Union.
“The African Leadership Academy Model African Union (ALAMAU) celebrates the significant role that the African Union (AU) has played in the pursuit of peace and prosperity on our continent in the past twenty years,” shares ALAMAU’s Deputy Chairperson, Okuhle Qasana.
“Our conference theme seeks to reaffirm our commitment to the existing Agenda 2063 vision. We recognise the challenges that the continent faces, particularly that of Covid-19, which has brought new as well as exacerbated existing challenges. As we move towards recovery, we seek to take decisive action towards the tangible realisation of our vision.”
ALAMAU gives participants the platform to not only actively engage with peers from around the continent in birthing new collective pan-African dynamics, but to also challenge presumptions about leadership and governance with the goal of creating a more inclusive and engaging interface for African youth in the years to come.
Delegates will have the opportunity to strengthen their research, public speaking, strategic thinking, and other skills.
“During four days, delegates will engage in thoughtful discussions and unpack the most challenging questions facing Africa. Through rigorous committee sessions, they can expect to go beyond their comfort zone to collaborate, negotiate, and debate to finally draft resolutions and create action plans that will strengthen their resolutions,” says ALAMAU’s Chairperson, Adayé Sosthène Yvan N’guettia.
