Today our Program Manager Munduru Mercy Grace will be speaking at the virtual dialogue themed: “Youth as City Makers and Face of Urbanisation”. Most of the dissatisfaction among youth links to their economic, social and political marginalisation. A significant proportion of these youth are both poorly educated, survivors of sexual violence/child and forced marriages while others trapped in structural unemployment, while others are highly educated and globally connected, but excluded from local social and economic assets that urban societies can offer.
With young people looking to cities for work the face of urbanization is a young one. The goal for having a conversation at this time is to strengthen and promote the role of cities in poverty reduction, and in sustainable development, supporting the full participation and representation of those who constitute the future of a city is an integral part of that vision.
