Starting 8 to 10 July, the European Union and the African Union will engage youth in a Meet-Up, Speak-Up and Listen Up session.
During the Youth Meet-Up, an online event, African & European youth will meet together to think about their post-COVID-19 future and to make recommendations to the 5th Africa-Europe Youth Summit, to take place alongside the Summit of African and European Heads of States in October.
The Meet-Up sessions will allow youth from both continents to debate, interact, and weigh in on important global issues: the environment, education, job creation, digitalisation, peace & security, governance, culture & arts.
Speakers from Africa include: Youssou N'Dour, Cheick Modibo Diarra, Ifeyinwa Ugochukwu and many others. To find out more, go to the meet-up page:
