Youth to debate on regional integration

20 March 2014, 11:50

Nairobi - The Kenyan Chapter of the East African Youth Ambassadors Platform is set to hold a debate on the region’s regional integration agenda.

The event is scheduled for the United States International University (USIU)- Africa next Tuesday.

The USIU students from across the African region will engage with speakers on the benefits and opportunities that regional integration has opened up for students in particular and youth in general as well as the key role of this critical age group in the integration process.

Similar debates are ongoing in Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania.  

The debates are supported by the EAC Secretariat, Ministries responsible for EAC Affairs in the Partner States and German International Cooperation (GIC).

The events will feature speakers from the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA), East Africa Business Council (EABC), MEAC and the EAC Secretariat.

According to a statement from the office of the EAC Secretariat, the aim of holding sensitization forums is to create awareness on the EAC among university students and lecturers.

“Previous sensitization fora have been held in Moi University, Eldoret, Kenyatta University Law campus and Egerton University, attracting about 300 participants, including lecturers from each of the universities,” stated the EAC.

More of such forums will be held in other universities with the Technical University set to host the next one on 4 April. Currently, EACYAP is collaborating with the MEAC and the EAC Secretariat to hold EAC Awareness weeks spreading through March to April in seven universities in Kenya.

Among these are University of Nairobi, Egerton, Maseno, KCA, Nazarene, Moi and Catholic Universities.
