World Youth Forum, or Africa that wins - Egypt, November 2018
From 2 to 6 November 2018, took place in Egypt the World Youth Forum in the historic and mythical city Sharm EL Sheikh under the high patronage of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.
Young Africans have joined more than 5000 young people from 145 countries around the world to take part in this great event and have worked on issues focused on peace, development, creativity and entrepreneurship.
On the sidelines of this forum, there was a summit of African and Arab countries around the issue of Afro-Arab cooperation and integration. On this subject, speaking to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sissi, young Congolese Emamsy Mbossa did not fail to recall that "living together is a key element towards sustainable development", and expressed the will of the African youth to collaborate with young people from all over the world and particularly young people from the Arab world for peace, development and better integration of young people.
At the end of this Forum, several recommendations were addressed to the Egyptian President and the African Union, among others: Establish an Arab and African Fund to support the consolidation of peace in countries in the post-conflict period, finance the reconstruction and development; the creation of a program to recruit and train Arab and African youth in leadership, science and art.
World Youth Forum is a platform built by promising youth. It sends a message of peace, prosperity, harmony, and progress to the entire world.
