National Youth Consultative Conference ahead of 5th Africa - EU summit organised by Centre for Coordination of Youth Activities (CCYA) and funded by the European Union took place on 19th July 2017 in Freetown. Young woman and man from all over Sierra Leone came together to contribute to a discussion on issues and aspirations of youth in the country.

The Africa-EU Summit will take place in Abidjan on 29th and 30th November 2017. Investing in Youth is foreseen to be the overarching theme of the Summit, which matches the African Union's own theme for 2017 of "Harnessing Demographic Dividends for accelerated Youth Empowerment". The aspirations of young people, youth organizations and networks should be taken into account and feed into the conclusions of the Summit.
