The Young People for Global Goals Conference 2019 will bring together young people to focus on achieving Global Goals in Africa.
About this Event
We invite you to join us at this year’s Young People for Global Goals Conference, happening on the 29th of November 2019 at the National Merit House Maitama, Abuja.
Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, evidence based and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning and inspire a more impactful role of young people in promoting global goals in Nigeria and the African continent.
The Africa We Want
There is a pertinent need to transform Africa and redefine Africa especially in the eyes of a child. An urgent need to provide an inclusive Africa where every young person can grow well and blossom, where opportunities never get exhausted and every life matters.
The question that needs to be answered however, is Africa really rising, is Africa in any way sustainable?
The conference this year will put spotlight on the problems faced by the continent but most importantly the solutions that young people are bringing on board.
It will be an all encompassing well thought out discuss on the hopes and aspirations of the African Child.
Finally Young People for Global Goals Conference will provide a forum where youth can learn more about the sustainable development goals and the role of young people in its actualization.
Keynote speakers include:
Dr. Richard Munang, Africa Regional Climate Change Coordinator at UN Environment. Champion of Innovative Volunteerism
