International Youth Day 2020 Campaign

75% of Africa’s population is below 35, yet young people rarely get a seat at the table where their future is shaped: there is a democratic deficit when it comes to youth representation in decision-making. Yet, young people can be true catalysts for change. Sudan’s revolution is one example of the importance and effectiveness of youth activists, who fight for their future. To celebrate #YouthDay2020, we want to shine a light on five young activists from Sudan. Read what they have to say on youth representation in human rights activism!
