From 24-29 March, the ALN participated in a Youth Political Academy with the Liberal Democrats in the UK.

This opportunity provided our delegates with direct experience in campaigning on the ground within a variety of constituencies. Part of the Academy strengthened the knowledge and skills of delegates through training on door-to-door voter outreach, whilst also providing a platform for the sharing of our best practices from across Africa and Europe.

On the fringes of the event, the African participants formed a steering group of the Network’s Advisory Youth Council (AYC). During these meetings, the delegation, led by East Africa Vice President Rosemary Machua, strategised the structure, setting and tasks of the AYC.
The ALN is thankful to our long-standing partners at the Liberal Democrats for their valuable input during the course of the Academy. We are glad to have played a small part in their campaign, and wish our sister party the greatest success in the upcoming London Mayoral Elections and the EU Referendum.
