Description

The Council of Africa and partners are delighted to announce the dates of the Pan-African Youth Summit (PAYS) 2018, and are excited to welcome you to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The prestigious convocation of Africa's youth from across the continent and the diaspora is scheduled for January 24 to 25, 2018, and will be taking place at the North Addis Hotel in Addis Ababa, coinciding with the 30th Ordinary Session of the Heads of State and Government Summit of the African Union. The theme of the PAYS 2018 is: "Agenda 2063: Rethinking youth participation, empowerment and development in Africa".

The Council of Africa - Conseil de l'Afrique is an impact oriented international youth development organization working to promote enterprise driven growth, liberty centered development, and socioeconomic transformations and integration of Africa into a broad, prosperous, and sustainable continental economy. Our goal is to build a community of foundations, private companies, organizations, and governments, working together to accelerate impact - related investments across Africa. Our impact investing is the practice of aligning the management of resources and capital investments to our charitable purposes with the objective of achieving measurable positive social, environmental and governance benefits, while sustaining long-term financial returns. We strongly encourage collaboration, resource sharing, and youth leadership development.

In keeping with the above mandates, the Council of Africa and partners are organizing the Pan-African Youth Summit (PAYS) 2018, an annual high-level youth business conference designed to provide an integrated and inclusive platform for dialogue and substantive thought leadership, exchange ideas and explore new realities of youth empowerment, participation and development landscape across Africa, and offer unique insights and frank deliberations on effective continental, regional and national policies, strategies, and investments for growing and sustaining Africa's social and economic momentum, and to practically commit and engage the young people in moving the continent's Agenda 2063 forward - from aspirations to realization.

The PAYS event will be annually organized to coincide with the annual Heads of State and Government Summit of the African Union to enable young people's voices directly feed into the deliberations and outcomes of the AU Summits. Attendance is open to young people who are working in the fields of youth empowerment, participation and development, from both governmental, nongovernmental, and private enterprise agencies.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This is a must attend event for young people, academics, philanthropists, innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders in private businesses, civil society organizations; representatives of the development partners active in advancing youth empowerment and development in Africa; or active in growing trade, investments and entrepreneurship; and the leading youth social and mainstream media influencers at the national, regional and continental levels.
