Excerpts from the concept note of the organizers:

The first African university of young leaders of civil society organized by the CDRT in 2018 was a great success with the participation of 120 young people from over twenty French-speaking and English-speaking African countries. It was an opportunity for young people to debate in the presence of African, French and Canadian experts, the top five, elaborated by AfDB experts, namely, nurturing, enlightening, educating, integrating and improving the quality of life of Africans. Afterwards, the young people discussed the possibilities available to them to fully play their role as young people. A second African University of young civil society leaders took place in July 2019 at Mohamed VI University polytechnic (Marrakesh region). The theme chosen was Youth, innovation and development of Africa.
