African Youth News: 25 November
Today, in partnership with the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC), we are wrapping up our Youth Convention which is themed: “We have faith: the Africa We Want”. Held in Kenya, the event is focusing on Agenda 2063, the Africa We Want and skills building for the 21st century. A highlight was the involvement of the African Union, whose representative, Maryann Brown, led a stimulating session on Agenda 2063 by painting a picture of the future Africa that is peaceful and prosperous, with young people driving the African Renaissance. Today we discussed what youth really want and need and developed a path forward on the specific themes of health, education, employment, access and radicalisation. Indeed a stimulating few days with young people imagining and planning for an Africa they want.
