It is recognised in the implementation of both the African Union’s Agenda 2063, and the UN’s Agenda 2030 that youth have a significant role in reaching our collective development goals. With African youth accounting for more than 40% of global youth populations, there is a significant opportunity to embrace their(our) ethos of relational well-being, resilience and ingenuity in systemic transformation. In this talk, Ms. Nolita Thina Mvunelo will discuss the role of African youth in creating our collective futures.
