Together, the Africa we want is in reach
From 12-16 June 2023, the continent’s largest youth summit in sustainable development convenes again: this time, on the world’s largest stage.
5th African Youth Sustainable Development Goals Summit
12-16 June 2023
Hybrid (Virtual + Physical)
lusaka , Zambia.
The African Youth SDGs Summit is Africa’s largest youth forum on the Sustainable Development Goals. Launched in 2017, the Summit has evolved to bring together a multi-sector coalition of youth, development experts, government and UN entities, NGOs and the private sector to create the Africa we want together.
Once again, the African Youth Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Summit will be held both virtually and physically. We look forward to welcoming participants across Africa and around the world to connect and participate virtually, alongside a limited, in-person gathering of participants in Accra, Ghana.
Connect, network, and learn from a pan-African audience and contribute to an inspiring and constructive debate on the role of youth in the SDGs. Africa’s future is ours if we reach for it together. Are you in?
