Youth Conference: Amplifying Youth Voices in Rwanda

8:00 - 18:00 CET / 16:00 - 02:00 KST

Hybrid event

This youth conference aimed to unite young people, civil society organizations, the private sector, academia, and international non-governmental organizations for robust and pragmatic discussions on democracy. The theme of the conference was ‘Amplifying Youth Voices,’ addressing a crucial aspect of youth involvement in democracy. The event featured both a panel session which will facilitate discussions on “Strengthening inclusive democratic process and Youth participation” and a knowledge café that delved into the “challenges of insufficient youth participation in democratic spaces”. Additionally, it sought recommendations on enhancing the visibility of youth in civic spheres. The diverse backgrounds of participants and selected speakers, coupled with their extensive experience and rich insights into the topics, contributed to enriching the knowledge of all participants.
