The Autumn School for Sustainable Entrepreneurship is an annual program for young changemakers from the African continent and Germany. Driven by the vision of a transition towards a sustainable global economy it enables young entrepreneurs to learn more about sustainable business, consider how to maximize their social impact, share their locally acquired best practices with each other, and become part of an international network of young people sharing the same spirit of sustainability.

The vision: To create a network of sustainable entrepreneurs who think and learn globally
„ASA creates a future where sustainable business in Africa collaborates with youths in Germany; where an idea in Augsburg can develop with an incubator in Kenya. ASA creates a future where any young person can choose a path that opens his or her opportunities beyond their neighborhood into the wider world.“ (Justine Abuga, Ecobora - Wood Pellets from Saw Dust, Kenya, participants of the Autumn School 2016)
