Following the hugely successful inaugural edition of The Africa Youth Conversation (AYC), Africa Speakers Group are happy to announce that the second edition is scheduled to hold virtually on Saturday, 18 and 25 September 2021. The attendance remains free, though, participants are required to sign up to join the conversations.
The schedule follows a similar design to the last edition of the event – a four-part programme comprising two keynote presentations and two-panel sessions. The topics include:
– Innovate Africa: Building systems that enable young people to succeed at a significant scale.
– How I built it.
– The 4th Industrial Revolution: Educating and skilling young Africans for Africa.
– Public Leadership: Equipping Young Africans to transform the way governments innovate.
Based on the listed topics above, it is clear that this edition of AYC will cover four thematic areas of innovation, entrepreneurship, education and public leadership.
Africa Speakers Group are equally happy to state that beginning with the forthcoming edition “How I Built It” will become a constant feature at all the future Africa Youth Conversation.
“It is designed to create special opportunities for young people to learn vital lessons from those who are succeeding and those who have succeeded in building enduring legacies – young or not-so-young,” said Odinaka Iloh, Founder, Africa Speakers Group.
“We imagine that this signature session will grow to become very critical to our vision for youths in Africa. Through real and compelling storytelling, “How I Built It” will inspire young people to pursue a higher purpose in life – like leaving a legacy- and also enable them to gain insights on key success factors,” he added.
The Africa Youth Conversation 2.0 promises to be much bigger, better and more impactful, armed with the lessons from the inaugural edition. The organizer, Africa Speakers Group, will be more aggressive and strategic in mobilizing the youth, policymakers, thought leaders, decision-makers, researchers, academics, the development community and media from the continent and beyond to participate in the forthcoming event.
Exceptional and passionate speakers will be assembled, in consonance with our standard, to share insights on the outlined themes.
Through collective action, a potent community support system and strategic engagements through effective relationship building, this edition of the Conversation will further the cause Africa Speakers Group are set out to pursue – “to seek solutions to what matters to Africa”.
By this announcement, partners and collaborators from across the continent and beyond are invited to join the Conversation in more ways than one.
