Lomé to Host a Youth Forum Next Week

(Togo First) - The Togolese capital, Lomé, will host on September 9 the Youth Delivery Lab (YDL). This is a roundtable that will focus on the civic participation of youth in tackling youth issues and decision-making. Organized by the Youth for Youth (Y4Y) association, the meeting is themed: "From the promotion of local SMEs to the emergence of national champions: strategic issues and possible solutions for Togo."

About 500 young people –professionals, entrepreneurs, students– active in various sectors are expected to attend. The end goal of the gathering is to encourage these participants to develop a culture of civic-mindedness and patriotism. The Youth Delivery Lab is intended to be a forum for young people's civic participation in the government's vision, as well as a framework for exchange, networking, and the sharing of best practices between young people. The initiative is also intended as a tool for innovation and dynamism among young people in the service of development. 

This 1st edition of the YDL, according to the organizers, is initiated "to offer Togolese youth a voluntary program of capacity building (soft skills) and experience sharing to improve their employability."  Registration is compulsory for participation.
