The African Youth Task Force on Post 2015
About the Project
African youths need to participate more in global processes if they wish to affect the outcomes of tomorrow.
The global processes will affect their futures, and youths need to connect with and speak with those that
represent them if their voices will be carried into these important decision-making spaces.
Finances and geographical distance should not be barriers to their voices being heard. Their representatives
in New York are mandated to meet with and share, represent and feedback to their constituency, and African
youths need to move into these spaces and share their experiences with their representatives. In order to do
so AAI has initiated an African Youth Taskforce on Post 2015 to New York.
The Youth Task Force of twelve respected, experienced and dynamic young African leaders will travel to NYC
in October 2014 to learn from their Permanent Representatives there, to share their own experiences and to
open a space for greater African inclusion in global processes.
