What is life like in Africa today? How do people view the future and what is really their source of income? Through this course you will meet people working with fashion-design, photography, video production, coffee manufacturers and nature guides in eco-tourism. All of these encounters will give you a brand new image on Africa.
Africa vibrates of creativity and entrepreneurship. The course emphasizes on people’s outstanding driving force, inventiveness and self-sufficiency. Small scale entrepreneurs create long-term methods for sustainable development through employing themselves and others, growing slowly, recycling materials, organic farming and many other innovative solutions.
The aim of this course is to provide an updated picture on life in East Africa. We focus on entrepreneurship, values and visions on the future. We do also keep our eyes open to the challenges people face today. The course additionally provides an insight into the historical events that shaped the region. By highlighting people´s interplay with traditional knowledge and their surrounding environment, we approach a greater understanding of the social development and everyday life, particularly in Uganda.
