Interestingly, this 1st UNIPGC EUROPE Roundtable Meeting took place on Saturday, 1st June, 2024 at the Global Village, Berlin Germany, leading to the inauguration of UNIPGC Europe Executives.

The meeting themed:  “The Global Leadership Challenges, Resolution Strategies from Western Perspective,” was well attended by notable personalities from all around Germany and its environs including Executives of Africans in Deutschland (AID).

A keynote speech was delivered by Hon. Kevin Uguru, Member of the German Parliament, Berlin, who spoke on “The New Leadership Approach to foster growth and Sustainability as a Pathway for Global Peace and Good Governance”.

He noted that Transcendent leadership, grounded in servant leadership, offers a promising pathway to increase the trust necessary for global sustainability. This type of leadership goes beyond just pursuing organizational goals and instead focuses on serving the greater good and empowering others.

“Effective and authentic leadership is crucial for driving the needed change towards sustainable development; as such, leaders must have a clear vision and the desire to inspire and empower others to work towards shared national and global goals.”

He further added that good governance and transparent, democratic institutions are essential foundations for sustainable development. This requires pursuing more equitable and effective global economic governance, including through reform of the international financial architecture. 

He concluded that as we approach the halfway mark to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, there is a pressing need to accelerate progress through improved leadership and governance; fostering greater civic engagement and participation in advancing these shared goals is also important.

The new leadership approach to foster growth and sustainability as a pathway for global peace and good governance must combine transcendent and servant leadership, authentic vision, good governance, and greater civic engagement.

The second keynote address was delivered by Medical Doctor, Dr. Med. G. OSCAR KAMGA WAMBO, A German Medical Practitioner & Scientist, who spoke extensively on the Global Health challenges of vulnerable people at remote places as Tools to consolidate sustainable development Goals.

He explained that the sustainable development goals (SDGs) aimed to address global health challenges, particularly for vulnerable populations and those in remote areas. Some key considerations in using health challenges to consolidate progress on the SDGs include:

Improving access to healthcare services: Barriers such as infrastructure, equipment, internet, and electricity access can hinder healthcare delivery in remote and underserved regions.

Addressing these barriers is crucial to ensuring that vulnerable populations have access to essential health services. Addressing social determinants of health: The SDGs recognize that health is influenced by factors beyond just healthcare, such as poverty, education, and environmental conditions.

Addressing these social determinants of health is critical for improving overall well-being. Leveraging innovation: Innovative approaches like telemedicine and decentralized healthcare can help expand access to care in remote areas. Investing in such innovations can be a powerful tool for advancing the health-related SDGs.

The final keynote speech was delivered by Engr. Nurudeen Inwanfero, an Aeronautics Space Tech & Consultant who looked at The Strategical Plans and Goals of UNIPGC Germany for its Establishment and Affirmation of the Mission & Goals of UNIPGC from global Perspective.

The key goals and objectives of UNIPGC Germany include establishing partnerships and bilateral relationships with other investment, development and economic entities. Accomplishing these goals and objectives will enable Germany to achieve its overall vision.
