Africa Youth Scenarios Webinar Series 
The African Youth Scenarios is a forecast of how the Trends will play out between now and 2063, the year marked out for the completion of the Renaissance of Africa by the African Union’s Agenda 2063. Recent developments with the Covid 19 Pandemic have accelerated key trends and put significant pressure on the people and institutions of Africa.
The YMCA would like to share this knowledge and insight with the rest of the continent. We would like to tell the story of the Horizons, and using this forecast be able to craft innovative interventions for and with the millions of youth in the continent. It is for this reason that we hosted Zoom sessions that are centered on Innovating for the Future of the Continent through African youth.
