Africans cough it out NOW -episode 6
May 30, 2022

According to the Cities Alliance (2020) almost 60% of Africa’s population is under the age of 25, making Africa the world’s youngest continent. The growing youth population is both an opportunity and a challenge for the African continent. It provides an opportunity for Africa to leverage on the creative and innovative capabilities of young people. This creates an opportunity for economic growth and transformation.

Young people are the future. In 1976, it took one day to change the course of the country’s history in South Africa. The 16 June 1976 Soweto students’ uprising is a personification of resilience. The kind of resilience that requires to be reignited and rebirthed today.

In light of the 1976 youth, in June we commemorate the Soweto students by having unfiltered conversations with young and old people. Discussing everything impacting the youth from who they are destined to be. We will be having these unfiltered conversations with Africans across the African continent.

Some of the issues that will be explored are:

  • Xenophobia and young people
  • Youth and the impact of the group areas act
  • Youth and entrepreneurship
  • Youth and migration
  • Youth empowerment and creating opportunities
  • Youth unemployment- what’s next?
  • Xenophobia and young people
  • Youth, corruption and operation dudula
  • Youth and the future of education and work  

We invite you to take part in these discussions. We invite you to use your voice and unite Africa. For Africa to prosper, we need Africans to find solutions to the issues impacting Africans.

You are invited to spread the word and participate.
