CAPE VERDE - The African University on Youth and Development (AUYD) took place from 4th yo 12th July in Cape Verde and brought together approximately 150 Youth Leaders, mainly from Africa and Europe. Scouts and Guides organized two and participated mainly in three training courses which were held in the framework of the AUYD namely; in the Long-Term training course for trainers, the Portuguese speaking Scout Youth Forum and the training course on co-operation at the Pan-Africa level.
The second activity that Scouts were present at was the 2nd Long Term Training Course (LTTC) for trainers on Africa Europe Youth Cooperation.
The third course was organised by the WOSM Africa Regional Office, with the support of the European Region and focused on ‘Strengthening co-operation among African Youth organisations’.
The participants of the training course agreed to initiate a framework for cooperation at the Pan-African level, based on joint priorities and focussing on concrete activities such as the Africa-Europe Youth Summit which will take place in November 2010. This process was outlined in a draft action plan that includes steps forwards in order to achieve a strong and content-oriented co-operation.
