Yentyl Williams, President and Founder of ACP YPN has been selected to be part of the AU-EU Youth Plug-In Initiative. The #AUEUYPII is an unprecedented initiative by the African Union and the European Union to move beyond words to actions. Yentyl was selected as part of 36 strong youth delegation to work for the next five weeks between the respective Headquarters, in Addis Ababa and Brussels, to develop concrete proposals from the Abidjan Youth Declaration to ultimately present the action points to the Heads of State at the 5th AU-EU Summit.
The AUEUYPII is a unique opportunity for young people in Europe and Africa to be part of the decision-making processes of both continents, as well as a key vector of visibility for the institutions’ efforts to include young voices in sustainable development dialogues. The delegates will continue to work on the six thematic areas: (i) education & skills, (ii) peace & security, (iii) governance & inclusion, (iv) environment & climate, (v) business & job creation, and (vi) culture & arts.
You can actively take part in the journey by sharing your ideas via this form and by using the social media hashtag #aueuypii.
