YOUTH TRANSFORMING AFRICA NARRATIVE (YOTAN)

Deepen the practice of sustainable democracy that advance and maintain a climate of accountability, shape efficient digital leadership and overcome sustainable development challenges rooted in systemic inequality and exclusion.
Inequality is a major barrier to Sustainable Development, a fundamental challenge to human well-being and a major impediment to achieving the 2030 Agenda. Governance is a key to address and reduce inequality.

 

Today’s world is characterized by empirical difficulties, social injustice, and deepening inequalities which threaten our societal peace. Inequality in its various forms—economic, social, and political—constitutes a major barrier to development. Some of the challenges that are being faced by youth include poor or nonexistent access to education opportunities, high rate of unemployment, significant vulnerability to HIV infection and substance abuse, exposure to conflicts, increasing prevalence of urban violence, migration issues, growing poverty and food insecurity. The health of a democracy, it is often said, depends on the education of its citizens. Working across five key thematic areas, we focus on civic dialogue, raising awareness, tackling multi-dimensional poverty, democracy challenges and the roots of inequality and how these hinder sustained reforms toward inclusive growth and sustainability.
