#CAS2019
MARCH 11, 2019

The 2019 Summit will also feature the second CAS Youth Forum for Young and Emerging African Leaders with the theme: Shaping Our Future Together, Today. Young people in Africa are increasingly becoming aware of their leadership potentials; many are now change makers whose voices matter in relevant global issues. Through the apartheid regime in South Africa in the early 1990s, the Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia in 2011, the 2012 ‘Enough is enough!’ campaigns in Senegal to the third-term revolution in Burkina Faso in 2014, young people remain at the forefront of democratic struggles on the African continent.
