The Model African Union offers a unique opportunity for African Youth to study and familiarise themselves with the African Union through simulating the AU decision making process. This serves to enhance the leadership and decision-making capabilities of African youth, and educate them through practice on diplomatic behaviour through negotiation, consensus building and compromise.
The AUC Youth Engagement strategy seeks to strengthen the relationship between African youth and the AUC, as well as encourage young people’s ownership of the development of the continent towards the realisation of Agenda 2063. Specifically, the Model African Union ties in with the AUC strategies that work towards eliminating barriers to achieve active participation of young people and aims to identify solutions and opportunities that contribute to their development.
