The combination of lack of access to quality education and health; leadership and employment opportunities; effects of climate change; poor management of natural resources and unsustainable activities that lead to conflict; over many decades is affecting communities and livelihoods in Africa.
The Network of African Youths for Development (NAYD) is a group of thousands of like-minded, dynamic, and self-driven young individuals holding hands from across the continent and beyond eager to see real sustainable development and youth in action in Africa and is therefore planning to hold a Summit.
The Summit is intended to provide a platform for youth and youth leaders to discuss and reflect on imminent issues faced in Africa, as a continent, and draw up opportunities to improve youth development towards achieving a sustainable future. This Summit will also provide delegates with an excellent opportunity to form networks and act upon the challenges that youth are facing by curving a long term path towards a better future for Africa.
The Summit will take place from the 27th October to 2nd November 2013, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It will culminate into the formulation of key recommendations for implementation for various agencies and stakeholders. This Summit will also provide delegates with an excellent opportunity to form networks and act upon the challenges that youth are facing by curving a long term path towards a youth led for better future for Africa.
