Youth Engagement forum 2021
The Youth engagement Forum (YEF) is a multistakeholder engagement group for policy dialogue on issues of youth engagement. It brings together all stakeholders in a youth engagement debate, whether they represent governments, the private sector or civil society, including the technical and academic community, on an equal basis and through an open and inclusive process.
Global theme: “Transforming Food Systems: Youth innovation for human and planetary health’’
Forum theme: “Climate Action and other complimentary SDGs: synergies for healthier foods for a better planet”
Youth engagement is key to the transformation of food systems, and as such, has been incorporated into all Summit work streams and structures. The success of such a global effort will not be achieved without the meaningful participation of young people. Consumption patterns that impact one’s personal health and that of the planet are instilled early in life.
The Youth Engagement Forum(YEF) 2021 is a forum that brings together all Youth led organizations across Africa to discuss and find solutions to the challenges facing Africa and further more implement and inform policy makers of the findings of the forum. This is done in commemoration of the International Youth Day celebrated every 12th August, and is celebrated annually around the world by young people. Youth for Africa calls upon all organizations in the ecosystem to join in commemoration of this remarkable virtual event.
“Women's full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”, and the flagship Generation Equality campaign, which calls for women’s right to decision making in all areas of life, equal pay, equal sharing of unpaid care and domestic work, an end all forms of violence against women and girls, and health-care services that respond to their needs. Women stand at the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, as health care workers, caregivers, innovators etc.
As youth for Africa, we managed to organize the Teenage Pregnancy Campaign that saw many Youth in Africa come out to speak against teenage pregnancy in their various countries. We did not do this alone, we managed to involve a couple of Youth led organizations across Africa and partnered with them as we stood together in solidarity to speak out against teenage pregnancy. This campaign showed that there is need for need for more awareness about teenage pregnancy to members of the communities. The intervention of local leaders and authorities when it comes to addressing matters regards to teenage pregnancy was very poor.
