For over three years, county governance in Kenya, popularly termed as devolution has accentuated national development and socio-economic transformation with its roots anchored in the Constitution of Kenya, 2010. National MCG thereof employs the principles of experiential learning with collegial seminal guidelines to teach delegates not only how to debate and approach issues in inter-governmental relations, but also such essential skills as cooperation, negotiation and compromise.

National MCG main objective is to engage the delegates into active and unique policy programs in leadership at both the national and county levels of governance. Besides, the program seeks to introduce and appreciate the workings of diplomacy in inter-governmental negotiations with a keen interest in establishing a pool of highly trained competent young professionals.

During the National MCG, the educational experience is supplemented with presentations by global authorities with acumen on inter-governmental relations. Besides, the program provides mentorship opportunities for students and leadership attachments in global leadership programs. Beyond the Committee room, National MCG Machakos is proud to present the National MCG Cultural Extravaganza in-order to enhance cross-cultural exchanges amongst the delegates and faculty advisors.

The vast array of topics and committees will further ensure a unique and thought-provoking experience for each and every delegate. The topics will range from national security analysis, gender mainstreaming, devolution and governance, infrastructure and energy, food security, and trade, investment and development. These topics will be assigned to the General Assembly with specific county delegate and committees discussing unique topics while representing state and non-state actors.

This is the inaugural session of the annual educational opportunity. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to submit your application as you purpose to partake of this exciting challenge. Be the first and set #TheTrend for future National MCG conferences.
