On 15-17 August 2023, the 5th African Youth Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Summit will convene, continuing the largest youth forum on sustainable development in Africa.
The 5th Summit will follow up on the event’s phenomenal success since its inception in 2017. The 3rd Summit brought together 1,500 young leaders from Africa and beyond to share success stories and imagine solutions for the SDGs. While this year’s event was originally planned as an in-person event in July, the event has been moved virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We aim to engage participants through innovative virtual channels and offer a collaborative digital space for participants, partners and interest groups in Africa and worldwide to share experiences and perspectives
