The African Youth Development Summit

This youth summit, co-hosted by the Africa80 & JCI and in partnership with the APRM & Global Citizens Festival will feature a 3 day conference starting at the Pan African Parliament to identify the greatest challenges we face as youth; speak on collaborative opportunities and hindrances; as well as identifying actionable solutions to co-create the AFRICA WE WANT!

The Summit will bring together not only young leaders from across Africa in an assortment of industries and professions, but also current leaders in governance; civil society; and business in order to engage in an intergenerational dialogue & co-creation of solutions. The #AYDSummit is FREE entry, but ONLY 100 YOUNG LEADERS will be selected to attend. All participants/delegates will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation fees; and though this is the case, we are happy to send formal invitation letters to selected participants looking to secure sponsorship.

After the conference, each participant will be given a complimentary ticket to attend the Global Citizens Festival celebrating Nelson Mandela’s centenary on the 2nd December 2018 at FNB Stadium. The Festival will feature international & continental artists such as Beyoncé; Jay-Z; Wizkid; Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams; Cassper Nyovest; D’ Banj; Usher, but to name a few.
