Angered and Empowered: Youth as agents of change across Africa
In a continent where youth are by far the largest demographic yet experience unprecedented levels of unemployment, I argue that youth will be the driving force of change across Africa. In fact, I go beyond this to assert that youth already have been a driving force of change across the continent and will continue to drive change as long as they are not satisfied with their available economic opportunities. I also state that the main motive for youth to demand change is a lack of professional opportunities. Lastly, I argue that African youth will be able to create change due to their demographic dominance, as well as their ability to utilize new technologies to their advantage, specifically social media.
