Venue: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia AUC Conference Centre (alternative: UNECA Conference Center)
Date: May 23-24, 2013
This year (2013) marks the 50th Anniversary of the Organization of African Unity/African Union (OAU/AU), which was founded on the 25th May, 1963. The 50th Anniversary celebrations provide a unique opportunity to recreate the African narrative by putting it in perspective to enthuse and energize the African population and use their constructive energy to set and implement an agenda for unity, peace and development in the 21st century. The thrust of this agenda is a program of social, economic and political rejuvenation that links the past, present and future in order to create a new generation of Pan-Africanists. This generation of Pan-Africanists will harness the lessons learned and use them as building blocks to consolidate the hope and promises of African Unity and Renaissance. TrustAfrica along with several other partner organizations will be a co-covener of this two-day dialogue coordinated by the AUC Chairperson's office.
