Nairobi to host EAC universities debate

30 July 2014, 17:54

Nairobi - The East African Community (EAC) has begun preparations for the EAC University Students’ Debate 2014, which scholars from institutions of higher learning in the region will attend in Nairobi.

The event is scheduled for September 4-5.

According to the EAC, the debate, which brings together students from various universities and institutions of higher learning from the region, is an important avenue for sharing information, exchange of ideas and promoting discourse and sensitization.

Towards this end, the EAC in collaboration with the GiZ-EAC Programme, is holding a three-day preparatory meeting scheduled to end on Wednesday to map out the strategies for the forthcoming debate.

Deputy Secretary General of the EAC, Charles Njoroge, officially opened the meeting.

He urged the youth to continue to be advocates championing the tenets of integration.

Njoroge commended the EAC Youth Ambassadors Platform for the noble work of spearheading and popularizing EAC integration within the university community.

“I also want to assure you that EAC is committed to strengthening the networks the Platform has created with University administrations over time as well as the EAC Youth Clubs in fulfilment of the principal of participation and involvement of all segments of the society in the integration agenda,” he said.

The EAC mooted the University Debate under the Nyerere Centre for Peace Research.

The debate among other things envisages the full participation of the young people in dialogue as well as in the exchange of ideas on concrete issues that have impact.
