The 2030 Youth Alliance is a Pan-African coalition of youth-led organisations and Non-Governmental organizations working to mobilize African youth to drive the implementation of Agenda 2030 and 2063 in Africa. The alliance was established in January 2017 in response to calls for the conveners of African Youth SDG Summit to collaborate with like-minded organizations to advance their common objectives and give youth-led organizations a stronger voice in the implementation of Agenda 2030 and 2063 in Africa. Initially made of seven (7) organizations, the Alliance has expanded and has current membership of 44 accredited member organizations in 19 African countries.
In the lead up to the 2018 African Youth SDGs Summit, the 2030 Youth Alliance with support from Action Aid Denmark hosted a consultative workshop with members of the alliance dubbed “Pre-Summit Strategic Workshop” to engineer and review the concept and governance structure for the Alliance. This workshop brought together 32 participants from 11 African countries.
As a follow up from the workshop and in line with the action plan of the African Youth SDGs Summit, the alliance is proposing to host policy roundtables at country level to mobilize and provide platform for youth engagement and participation in the SDGs implementation processes.

Key Objectives

  • Create a national platform for dialogues on the role of young people in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
  • Provide a platform for networking, sharing of best practices and coalition building around mobilizing young people for the SDGs
  • Educate and inform youth CSOs and stakeholders on key SDGs accountability mechanisms such as the Voluntary National Reviews to foster collaborations and partnerships.

Expected Outcome

  • Increase awareness of the SDGs among the youth
  • Increase synergies and coordination of youth-related activities on the SDGs at country level
  • Form the SDGs Youth Technical Committee/Working Group to provide technical inputs into SDG related activities at country level
  • Share best practices and innovations as well as key lessons from the 2018 African Youth SDGs Summit
  • Networks and alliances are built among young people and key SDGs institutions.

We are therefore extending invitation to organisations to form strategic partnership with us to host the roundtables in different countries. The partners or collaborators will work hand in hand with the alliance members at country level to host the roundtable. We are looking for national agencies, International Organizations, private sector institutions and local NGOs with focus on youth. Kindly complete the form below to sign up.
