The objective of the AUD 2019 conference
The challenge for Africa’s future is to provide the skilled labor force for digitized future markets, to participate in global competition and to accelerate the implementation of the Agenda 2063.
The aim of this conference is, therefore, to contribute towards solutions for the development of a successful African continent by Africans and Diaspora, to establish new markets and build up human resources to secure Africa’s future and combat causes of flight from the grassroots.

Structural Foundation for Funding Economic Integration

Podium Discussion: African-Asian-European economic relations – dependence or equal Partnership?


Women Forum 25.05.2019 – discuss different topics and workshop

African women and girls are the groups most affected by poverty. Lack of access to education, health care, technology, political
participation, country and economic opportunities and the experience of gender-based exploitation and discrimination is
structural stumbling blocks. Although they account for 61.9% economically produced goods, only 8.5% of African wage earners in the non-agricultural sector are women. At the same time, according to UNESCO, two-thirds of the global population are uneducated female.
However, only if the chances of women’s participation in education, economy, society, and policy can be improved, the overall
situation in Africa will improve. Because the first teacher, supervisor, and boss in every man’s life is a woman.


Young Leaders Forum 25.05.2019 – discuss different topics and workshop

This conference unit was developed with the aim of bringing future executives of the Diaspora and Africa to enable them to address cultural identity problems and to overcome structural disadvantages, to become innovative global actors and active players and to become co-designers of Agenda 2063.
