African Youth Human Rights and Culture Summit

As African youth, it’s time to demand your basic needs; dignity, freedom, equality, peace and justice. Learn how to stand up for your rightsAbout this EventWhy is it that the world’s richest continent (in terms of natural and human resources) has most of the poorest countries in the world? Out of the 25 poorest countries in the world, 23 are located in Africa and the top 10 poorest countries are from Africa. Why does Africa have the poorest people? Have you thought of an answer to these questions?The violations of political, economic and human rights are the root causes of many difficulties Africa citizens are facing. In Africa, rights to adequate food, water, medicine, housing, clothing, employment and cultural life are denied. Certain small groups are oppressing the large majority groups and denying them of their basic rights. This they achieve by excluding the large groups from the society’s decision-making processes.Enough is enough! Enough of Africa sinking in poverty, inequality, insecurity, and unemployment. As African youth, it’s time to demand your basic needs. It’s time to demand dignity, freedom, equality, peace and justice. It’s time for you to unveil your power to drive social impact in Africa.YGEM, in partnership with Royal Africa Generational Thinkers, presents the 2020 African Youth Human Rights and Culture Summit (AYHRCS). The theme for this year summit is UNVEIL YOUR POWER TO DRIVE SOCIAL IMPACT IN AFRICA. The purpose of this summit is to empower Africa youths to stand up for their rights and for the rights of others to create a brighter future for the continent of Africa.YGEM is creating a platform where youths collaborate to make human rights an Africa reality. The summit will feature Human Rights Hero Awards, short Human Right movie, briefings from high-level diplomats and officials, presentations by youth delegates and panel discussions on how to demand your rights and learn how to drive social impact in Africa.
