Another edition of YouthConnekt Africa (YCA) takes place from 20 to 22 October in Accra, Ghana. The YCA is a pan-African platform with a vision to connect African youth to socio-economic transformation. The platform seeks to empower young people by enhancing their knowledge, experiences and skills while investing in their ideas, innovations, and initiatives. The YCA Hub has grown into a network of 24 African countries with long-term sponsors and partners, including the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the Government of Rwanda. Over the years, the summit has seen high-level participation from various UN agencies, African youth ministers, the private sector and youth-led organisations.
São Tomé and Príncipe will attend the event with a delegation led by the Minister of Youth, Sports and Entrepreneurship, Vinício Pina, and including the Director of Entrepreneurship, Alexander Ferreira, Social Entrepreneur, Edgar Coelho, UNDP Resident Representative, Katarzyna Wawiernia and Associate Manager Dynka Amorim.
The summit will be held under the theme: "Africa Beyond Aid: Positioning Youth for the Post-COVID Economy and AfCFTA Opportunities". The aim is to raise awareness among the continent's youth about an Africa Beyond Aid Agenda and to position youth to take advantage of the opportunities that AfCFTA presents.
