The town hall meetings, designed to gather leading young people within communities to host meaningful dialogue aimed at tackling important issues facing the continent with a focus on their community, will also spur nominations of young Africans creating change. Taking place in August and September 2015, these meetings will cut across the continent, taking place in cities including Durban, South Africa; Dakar, Senegal; Accra, Ghana; Lagos&Kano, Nigeria; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
"Young people across the continent are becoming increasingly aware that tackling the issues and collaborating on unique solutions can generate powerful multipliers effect that create wide-ranging impact—not only in their local communities and countries, but also in the rest of Africa,” said Mfon Ekpo, Executive Director, The Future Project (TFP). “We need to ensure these voices are heard and recognised as a rich source of inspiration and ideas that will transform our continent, and TFP is excited to help take these first steps.”
The theme for TFAA’s 10th anniversary is ‘Imagine Africa!’ chosen to highlight young Africans who are fulfilling the promise of the continent by conquering the unlimited frontiers of imagination. TFAA is proud to demonstrate the richness and variety of positive change catalysed by these young ideas.
