Each World Youth Congress gathers youth from 100+ countries to explore the question: "What is the most effective role that youth can play in achieving shared sustainable development goals?" This 7th Edition of the Congress will be our first in Sub-Saharan Africa; the first to schedule a High Level Segment where the young delegates will discuss their ideas directly with Heads of State and Agency leaders; the first to be organised in partnership with a Minister for Youth Employment, and therefore, the first to focus directly on solving the problem of youth unemployment with the output planned being a "Road Map to Full Youth Employment by 2030." Like every WYC, this one will be youth-planned and youth-led - with a strong arts / cultural programme and Community Action Projects to enable delegates to meet and work with local artisans, youth and farmers.
