The Arab and African Youth Platform will take place in March in Upper Egypt’s Aswan, as part of the recommendations of last year’s World Youth Forum.
According to Al-Ahram daily newspaper, the platform will be held from 18 to 20 March, and will take place under the auspices of Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
The platform will focus on a number of issues of interest to Arab and African youth, in light of Egypt’s chairmanship of the African Union this year.
It will include sessions, workshops, and roundtables with youth leaders and decision makers in an open dialogue, focusing on the major concerns of youth in the Arab world and Africa.
Aswan was announced by El-Sisi at the World Youth Forum as the “capital for African youth” in 2019.
