Globally, it is perceived that youth empowerment is critical to achieving growth and development and therefore exist the necessity for discussion on the involvement of national governments, regional entities and international organizations to identify how development actors can translate and respond development challenges in their communities.

There is a strong new impetus to include and promote youth participation in a wide range of policy and development dialogues and initiatives to ensure that youth perspectives are addressed in these processes and taken into account for their implementation.

As we understand that youth empowerment is on the global agenda as a key pathway for poverty reduction and sustainable economic growth, the event aims to create an environment of high level discussion involving key leaders to share ideas, experiences and opportunities for young people in Brazil and Africa.
