Unlocking the potential of Africa’s most valuable resource
**Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to move the webinar to Tuesday 5th of July.**
The story of youth unemployment in Africa is often told alongside the tale of fast and steady economic growth on the continent. With more than 200 million people aged between 15 and 24, Africa has the largest population of young people in the world, and current trends indicate a doubling of the numbers by 2045. Therefore, investing in their education, health, and protection will be key to unlocking a demographic dividend in the 21st century. This webinar will look at the different options that governments and other sectors have to unleash this potential.
Note: We will be holding one webinar each for APAC, EMEA, and Americas to cater for the difference in time zones. Can’t make it to any of the sessions? Please feel free to register for any session and we will automatically share the recording with you 3 hours after the webinar has finished.
