Planning for Africa's Future: Youth Perspectives from Kenya and South Africa
Many African governments are facing an emerging policy challenge of how to accommodate growing young adult populations in constrained economic environments. Pathways to economic stability can be unclear, and prospects for long-term employment low. Policymakers must fully understand the perspectives and ideas of this new generation if they are to meet their expectations and achieve the changes needed to ensure future prosperity for their citizens.
At this UK launch of the British Council’s latest Next Generation research on Kenya and South Africa, report authors and youth representatives will discuss how to expand economic opportunities for young people in the two countries, and how young people can be included in policy planning and implementation.
