Kenya - Africa Youth Conference 2018
The Africa Youth Conference was held in Nairobi, Kenya, on October 23-25 2018.
Organized and sponsored by UN Women, UNDP, UN Environment, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNICEF, and other partners, the conference offered a regional platform to 300+ young people and key stakeholders to share ideas and experiences and showcase innovative approaches to effectively address youth challenges in Africa.
Africa has the youngest population with over 40% of the population below the age of 15, while about 20% of the population fall between 15-24 years age. This is indeed the opportunity that exists to harness the potential of youth in the realization of Sustainable Development Goals.
