6. Sports Stadium
7. Parliament House of Congress of African People (CAP)
Staffing to facilitate regular convening of Pan African Congresses to address issues of governance and political culture, in countries inhabited by People of African descent.
Ideally, this Project would operate and function on Land, which was autonomous (much like the Vatican in Italy). This, so it is not partial to any country or region, and is free to address concerns and issues anywhere within the Pan African World.
Sustainable housing communities could be built around such a compound
to house staff and locals needing quality housing. These housing communities would be self sustaining, meaning that they have their own shops, cleaners, community farming, restaurants, movie theaters.Key to this project, is the development of self sustaining industries, of which the most important are Water, Waste and Energy Management. This addition would add a continuous and independent revenue source for the Project, the host community, country and region.
In order to make this project even more attractive and a revenue producing entity, would be to add the Sankofa Theme Park and Isis Spa and Resort. revenues from these could provide sustainable funding for the cultural center activities.
