UAC PACE 2024 Schedule-At-A-Glance

In summary, sharing opportunities and challenges within the context of a Pan-African city is essential for promoting economic growth, sustainable development, cultural enrichment and social progress across the continent. Collaboration enables cities to learn from one another’s experiences, leverage shared knowledge and work together to build a brighter future for the African Diaspora as a whole. Thus, the 2024 UAC PACE 2024 Exposition featuring the Pan African Symposium on the Pan African City is focused on these very principles which foster, encourage and implement policies and practices that ensure sustainability, resilience, recovery, inclusivity and equity.

The UAC PACE 2024 Exposition provides you with a balance of the core program content that you know and love, mixed with new and exciting program features that you will remember for years to come. This year’s event provides you with an expansive array of diverse learning, engagement and networking opportunities.
