Future Africa | UNICEF Youth Forum

UNICEF partnered with the University of Pretoria to scale up various skill-building and capacities to respond to COVID-19 with a focus on youth. The project hosted by Future Africa is known as “YEaH” (Youth Empowerment and Health/Economic Responses to COVID-19). The pandemic came with serious impacts and likely future risks for the next generation in terms of reduced opportunities for employment, exposure to health, and social consequences that cannot be addressed without harnessing the diversity and energy from the youth. The Youth Forum will take place on Thursday, 10 June 2021. This will be in observance of Youth Day, 16 June 2021, as well as Youth Month (June). The Youth Forum will include UNICEF’s other youth-inclusive projects, as well as Generation Unlimited (GenU).
