Social Justice: The African Youth Challenge

Showing dates/times for

With half the population of Africa aged 19 or under, and a quarter of the world's people expected to be living on the continent by 2050, social justice cannot be achieved globally if it is not first realized for the youth in Africa. 

This World Day of Social Justice, ILO Africa brings together representatives from the international development community to hear from the youth on what they say they need to realize their dreams, and discover their solutions to Africa's social injustices.
