Advancing youth-centred digital ecosystems in Africa in a post-Covid-19 world

This publication is the first of two to explore the findings and insights from an online global consultation, held in July 2020, exploring young Africans’ use of digital technologies in different areas in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. More specifically, this paper discusses the topics of the first day of the consultation, when participants delved into youth activism and community engagement, and questioned which digital skills are needed for youth to meaningfully engage in shaping our digital societies.
