On May 19, 2017, the Permanent Observer Mission of the African Union to the United Nations held an African Youth Forum to commemorate the AU’s 2017 theme of “Harnessing the Demographic Dividend through Investments in Youth. The forum was held in the ECOSOC Chambre of the UN Headquarters in New York and formed part of activities to commemorate the 2017 edition of Africa Day. It was aimed at gathering young people and high officials from different parts of the world to form a cross-sectoral and inter-generational platform that would help garner support for Africa’s efforts towards harnessing the demographic dividend.
