In line with Goal 11 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, this year’s theme is “Safe Spaces for Youth”. These safe spaces include civic spaces for governance interactions, public spaces for leisure and sports, and digital spaces for cross-border virtual interactions.
Unlike every kind of space that enables youth engagement, safe spaces add a layer of safety, non-violence and non-marginalisation devoid of bias. In Africa, several safe spaces already exist but not enough are digital; online.
But in these times, digital safe spaces have become as — or even more — important than their physical counterparts in Africa. But why digital safe spaces?
We are therefore calling on all young women and girls for this networking discussion session on either December 20 or 21, 2018 for a two-hour talk from 3-5pm.
Join us. Karibu.
