Launching Generation Unlimited Sahel
Unveiling a new vision for the Sahel
Join us at the official launch of GenU Sahel!
Sahel's youth are key to driving economic growth, creating sustainable green economies, and engendering peace in the region. They have what it takes to build a better Sahel, but we must give them the ladders of opportunity they require to create lasting change. They need relevant skills, and they need opportunities for employment, entrepreneurship, and social impact.
Youth Africa Day, November 1 2021
10:00 am to 12:00 pm EST
The new GenU Sahel UN-GenU initiative will maximize opportunities in the Sahel, equipping 100 million young people with the skills needed to thrive in the digital and green economy by 2030.
The event will bring together an array of exceptional young change-makers, Heads of State and Government, Private Sector, Civil Society leaders and notable personalities with influence. They will present commitments, solutions, and ideas that aim to address the needs of Sahel's youth, and enable them to build a better, more sustainable, and peaceful world, as envisioned in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Africa’s 2063 Agenda.
