Future Prospects for Africa’s Youth:
Regional and international strategies

- Participation on personal invitation only -

6-7 April 2017, NH Hotel, Potsdam

Conference languages: German and English

Africa is the youngest of all continents: 62 per cent of its people are below the age of 25. While the youth share of the population is declining in other world regions, it is growing in Africa. It is projected that by 2100, more than one third of the world’s young people will live in sub-Saharan Africa. This presents an immense challenge but also offers major development potential.

What are regional youth policies in Africa? Where do policy gaps exist in practice? What does the private sector contribute? What do youth organisations demand? What are the African partners’ expectations of Europe?
