Ghana National Youth Summit

The world Youth Alliance Ghana chapter in its quest to ensure that the masses of the youth in Ghana contribute in ensuring a peaceful election come December 7, 2012, are hosting the second National Youth Summit – a platform to brainstorm on their role towards a peaceful election.

The event is scheduled for October 27, 2012 at the Darkuman Social Center, Accra and it’s expected to be attended by over 200 young people across the country with paramount speakers and invited guests.

Around the world many young people are victims of cultural, direct, and structural violence and become carriers of that violence or perpetration. There is a strong tendency among politicians and researchers to see youth as a problem to be solved. However, many youth are peaceful and peace-builders. Equally affected by various forms of violence, they decide to act constructively towards building a culture of peace. Youth are underestimated as positive agents of change and key actors in peace-building, both by policy-makers and academics.

This summit will explore the role of youth as peace-builders, illustrating their unique power and potential to affect social change through a number of examples.

The event is free for Ghanaian youth. For more info and registration contact our chapter representative via email: wyaa.ghana@gmail.com or call; 0244612157 / 0244423447 / 0241221897
