We are humbled to report that the aspiring Youth MP for Northern Uganda, Hon. Aldo Adomati, has proudly raised the Ugandan flag in Denmark. 

Hon. Adomati presented a groundbreaking position paper outlining a wish-list agenda for strategic Denmark-Africa relations during an exclusive boardroom meeting with 17 African youths drawn from various countries.

As one of the highly formal meet-up at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Copenhagen, Aldo, along with four other African youths from Kenya, Zambia, and Uganda, was selected to represent the concrete demands of African youths to Hon. Dan Jørgensen, the Minister for Development Cooperation and Global Climate Policy. 

The team presented the voices of African youth on issues pertaining to the seven priorities of the AU 2063 Agenda, as seen in the document below;
