Summit Details

Any Continent whose substantial population consists of Youth should be happy and at the same time worried. Happy because those Youths can be used as instrument of growth, social engineering and political stability by productively engaging them in all sectors of the economy. Similarly, it should be a cause of worry because such huge chunk of the population, if not properly coordinated can be misused as political thugs to cause instability and breakdown of law and order within the country. Over the years, the continent of Africa has witnessed series of bloodshed, political crisis, military overthrow of civilian leaders among others, and in all of these, the actors are always people within the age bracket of Youths. It is against this background that we have organized the second Youth Summit focusing on the role of youth in peace making and peace keeping in Africa. This topic is carefully chosen with the sole aim of interrogating how responsible are the youths in ensuring a safe and conducive continent. We have selected experts who are themselves youth to dissect the topic, review the role youths have so far played in ensuring peace in Africa and what do they need to do going forward. It is therefore our hope and expectation that at the end of this second summit, far reaching recommendations shall be provided to address most of the conflicts in Africa and how to manage our disagreements and differences without bloodshed.
