MINDS Annual African Youth Dialogue 2015

MINDS Annual African Youth Dialogue 2015

Deadline: May 29, 2015

The Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS) is announcing the dates for its 2015 annual African Youth Dialogue on Elections and Governance to be held in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. The aim of the Youth Dialogues is to foster the increase in the number of young people peacefully and actively participating in African elections and governance processes based on an appreciation of the significance of their demographic superiority. It is therefore a useful platform through which African youth have an opportunity to interact as they interrogate and deepen the understanding of issues of mutual interest pertaining to the development and transformation of the Continent.

Participants will be drawn from all regions of Africa (North, West, Central, East and Southern Africa) using set criteria. MINDS is interested in identifying participants doing significant work in the respective countries and communities. To encourage networking and full participation, only 100 youths will be accepted to the dialogue.


All direct costs of participation in the dialogue will be covered by MINDS.


Open to young people all over Africa.
