How can young people use the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement to create work for themselves and their peers and use it to help with the many economic issues that we have had to deal with as a consequence of the pandemic? (We will interrogate the ACFTA to see if it works for us and capitalism of development and how that would look for us)
The “What Now” series created by the Ubuma Foundation seeks to have an intergenerational round table to discuss what some of the changes that have taken place during the pandemic mean for the world that we are live in post-COVID -19. More than that we seek to share insights on what the role and responsibilities of young people should be in building back a better tomorrow for all.
