Democracy, Economy and Sustainability

Migration and movement of people between countries in particular from Global South to Global North in the third millennium has deepened the discussions on Democracy, Economy and Sustainability and boosted the theories on the interaction between these three terms. 

In many countries these discussions and theories remain discussions and theories especially in wealthy countries as people are busy with the speedy and extremely competitive lifestyle while they are drowned in the sea of discussions and theories.

Among the politically active diaspora communities these three terms interact in a more practical pattern where these communities take the responsibilities of freeing their home countries and building democracy, sharing in responsibility toward achieving the SDGs and fighting to survive not to be crushed by poverty which is man made.  

UMBAJA ECONOMIC FORUM is opening the door to more practical directions on investigating the interaction between Democracy, Economy and Sustainability by inviting three former Sudanese ministers who led the Sudanese revolution against the dictator Omar Al Bashir and contributed to knocking him down. Two of them have been jailed and have been tortured by the dictator and later, the both they took offices in the transitional government that followed Al-Bashir removal from power, before they were again dismissed  after the army Executed a military coup in October 2021. 

Together with our guests from Sudan, we are also inviting guests from different German sectors including the political, NGOs, economic, unions, academic and journalism.   

UMBAJA e.V as one of supportive actors to the Sudanese revolution has a true interest in bringing all potential and interested stakeholders together to talk and discuss the relationship and interactions between Democracy, Economy and sustainability on a very important and crucial question: How can we together realize these discussions and theories into a practical, unique, remarkable and educative intervention example on the reality ground. 

Through our guiding questions and points that we are raising on the UMBAJA ECONOMIC FORUM on Democracy, Economy and Sustainability (DES) we are aiming to empower more and more migrants for a long term revolutionary act that leads to contributing to building a sustained democracy.
