Launch of the Youth Unstuck Innovation Guide
Future Forward will be celebrating the launch of the Innovation Guide that outlines the barriers and opportunities to transforming livelihoods and leadership in Africa based on your work. We will be inviting Fellows and members of the Ashoka network to give short story-based talks throughout the day that will be livestreamed to our Future Forward network around the continent and the world.
Based on the themes in the innovation guide, we want to give space for youth-serving organizations and leaders to get practical on the how-tos of addressing the challenges youth face in Africa. What have we seen work? What hasn’t worked? We will use these problem solving sessions to build an addition to the Innovation Guide that highlights the practical lessons we’ve learnt in bringing these ideas to reality.
Scaling and Collaboration Roundtables
Realizing this new vision for youth in Africa will take effective collaboration across sectors and the funding to back it. Over the course of the day, we will bring together experts (practitioners, policymakers, academics, funding partners and youth themselves) to discuss ways in which solutions to youth livelihoods gain traction and can be scaled through funding partnerships and the buy-in by the decision makers in African government. We recognize that the way forward is to ensure that we can work together.
