Youthmakers Hub at the 3is project “Internationalization & Inclusiveness of Higher Education in Eastern Africa” Event | 24 May 2024

From May 21st to May 24th, 2024, Youthmakers Hub participated in the “Internationalization & Inclusiveness of Higher Education in Eastern Africa” Event of the 3is: Impactful, Inclusive, Integrated Higher Education in Eastern Africa project in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. As the partner responsible for the project’s Communication & Dissemination, Youthmakers Hub was there to capture and share transformative discussions and insights.

The first day commenced with a warm institutional welcome, paving the way for a comprehensive discussion on the framework for internationalization and inclusiveness in Higher Education. Participants not only explored guidelines for self-assessment and future action plans but also the practical role of learning and teaching mobilities. The day culminated in a session on internationalization through curriculum design, setting the stage for tangible outcomes.

The second day was equally enriching, with parallel sessions on inclusiveness and internationalization. The morning sessions addressed inclusiveness in education and the transition to employment for graduates with disabilities, while the afternoon sessions focused on strategies for implementing inclusiveness and measuring internationalization through indicators. The day ended with a joint closing session.

The third and fourth days of the Consortium Mobility were dedicated to exploring the vibrant city of Addis Ababa and fostering connections with institutions, initiatives, and organizations that share our commitment to creating and implementing projects that drive significant impact in Africa. These networking opportunities hold immense potential for future collaborations and initiatives.

Overall, the event was filled with enriching discussions and efforts focused on inclusiveness and internationalization in Eastern Africa’s Higher Education.
