Africa and the world are facing huge challenges, and while most of these were not of our making, they’ve been left for us to deal with. Poverty isn’t something we just read about, education isn’t guaranteed, and climate change is real and already making our taps run dry.
The world’s, and specifically Africa’s, youth demographic is growing. It’s expected by 2055, Africa’s child population will reach one billion. Such an enormous change in demographics presents immense opportunities – and challenges. We need to start conversations and bring about long-lasting change for the betterment of all society.
This course has been developed by people of varying ages, with different lived experiences, and a passion for change. It was created through an extensive consultative process, which brought together the voices of young people from various parts of Africa. This course will take you through the processes of fact-finding, planning, engaging with policy, building momentum, and making individual lifestyle choices. We are united by the idea that we can, and must, make positive changes for a better future.
