The AU-UNICEF Youth Ref Group on ECM has a cultural dance group to campaign against harmful practices in Africa. "We must be driven beyond the surface of things as creative artists. The role of an artist is to liberate the mind of the audience." - Moses Uyang #1mBy2021 #DAC2021

"We need to adjust the lens through which we view young people, youth know what is best for them and we need to be careful not to resort to tokenism and call that meaningful participation" - @RewanYoussif #DAC2021 #Agenda4Children #1mBy2021

The 5 spaces where youth are found 1. No space - we need to bring them into the empathy space. They must care about Africa 2. Understanding space - get them to ask why things are happening so they can research 3. Solutions space - we need youth contributing to Africa's solutions
Dr Addai gets us into the Q&A round and he speaks of the importance of passing down knowledge from senior leaders to the youth. "When young people converse, things change" #DAC2021 #Agenda4Children
