2nd Young Leaders Forum

Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa is pleased to host the second Young Leaders’ Forum to take place on November 15 – 17, 2017 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Young Leaders’ Forum is a three-day annual program of dialogue, workshops, institutional visits and capacity building sessions bringing together youth between the age of 18-35 years, from social-political movements, business start-ups, social enterprises, civil society organizations, international organizations and public institutions. It is aimed at connecting youth to share experiences and learn from each other on the selected themes, discuss challenges they face and devise ways to address them. It brings youth in touch with their peers, researchers, entrepreneurs, influential speakers and development partners.

Convened for the first time in 2016, Young Leaders Forum invited 120 youth from Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Rwanda, South Sudan and Burundi to discuss themes centered on Social Movements, Technology and Innovation and Sustainable Development on November I – 3, 2016.

    Am writing this to ask for my participation in Youth summit in Dar es salaam, i applied for the summit but i failed to get a feedback.

    Venue: where exactly the venue for the event?

  4. You should send a feedback email to the ones who have tried to show up some steps in filling the forms and submitting but not selected.. Its a way of being a leader and thus showing a little encouragement and appreciation.
