African Union Summit on Industrialisation and Econonmic Diversification Essay Contest for African Young People

AU Summit on Industrialisation Programme Theme

The AU Summit on Industrialisation and Economic Diversification will be holding in Niamey, Niger Republic this year.

African youths should inspire the way we think and act, and they shape the society we live in. As African youths, what kind of industrialisation should be prioritized to maximise the synergies with Africa’s development agenda towards the overarching objective of achieving sustainable development and prosperity for all? In doing so, how can our African leaders best pursue the envisaged industrialisation pathway?

Purpose of The Competition

The essay contest is organised in an effort to harness the energy, creativity, and initiative of the African youth in promoting a culture of sustainable development in Africa, with a particular focus on industrialisation and innovation in Africa. It also aims to inspire African society to learn from the young minds and to think about how each of them can make a difference in our continent’s future. In a nutshell, the essay contest will serve to open up dynamic conversations and spur reflection and action by leaders on addressing issues on Industrialisation from the perspective of young people and push for much-needed reforms. The essay contest is organised by the African Union Commission as an activity within the preparation for the upcoming African Union Summit on Industrialisation and Economic Diversification, scheduled to be held in Niger, in November 2022.
