The Young African Leaders Programme

of the School of Transnational Governance

Meet Edem, Tumaini, Idah and Philip.

Four fellows from Ghana, Malawi, Madagascar and Uganda tell the story of the first cohort of African fellows at the EUI's School of Transnational Governance. In "African Renaissance" the viewer learns how a new generation of policy leaders wants to transform the African continent.

This programme for me was about growth. I learned new things in so many different ways.
