This year’s World Youth Alliance(WYA) Africa Youth Summit happened on Facebook due to the COVID-19 measures; otherwise, people would have been on their way to Nairobi, Kenya. The theme for this year was, ‘ROLE OF THE YOUTH IN GOOD GOVERNANCE.’ The two speakers were Caroline Maingi and Nadja Wolf. Kevin from the WYA Africa team was the host.
Caroline lectures on Philosophy and Ethics at Strathmore University, she is also a chair and advisor of the WYA Africa Board. Caroline gave her tips on Good Governance to the youth and some of which includes:
-Take up Leadership
-Say no to corruption
Nadja is the WYA Africa director of Advocacy since 2015. She studied law and is a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association. For the session she took Nadja broke down international law into customs and treaties and their impact on national policies. She also gave us the policy cycle Framework: Its Policy to Funding to Implementation.
As the delegates, we were able to introduce ourselves and ask questions via the comment section. Even though we learnt a lot virtually, we hope to attend the next youth summit in 2021 in person. To stay updated on the work of WYA Africa, you can check their Facebook page: World Youth Alliance Africa
