The Youth Forum is a privileged space for reflection and exchanges for African youth from the continent and the diasporas. The Youth Forum will be divided into two thematic sessions:
- Youth, Peace and Security
- Creativity, Entrepreneurship and Innovation
The Forum also provides African women and African youth with an opportunity to speak out and affirm their roles in the development of the continent. It also serves as a platform for the launch of public awareness campaigns relating to the International Day of Peace, observed on 21 September.
