Youth voices heard in Kigali during the Education for all debate in post-2015

The Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Ministerial Conference on Education Post-2015 was held from 9 to 11 February in Kigali, Rwanda. The conference was hosted by the Government of Rwanda and was organized jointly with UNESCO’s Regional Offices in Dakar and Nairobi. The conference provided an opportunity to review and assess progress made in attaining the Education for All (EFA) goals set in 2000.

The Conference welcomed a number of relevant stakeholders in education, including the recently created Pan African Youth Network on Culture of Peace. This newly founded network was launched during the Pan-African Forum, “Youth and the Challenge to Promote a Culture of Peace”, held in Libreville, Gabon, in December 2014.

The Pan African Youth Network on Culture of Peace encourages a more active role for youth in Africa’s sustainable education agenda and advocates for youth to be given opportunities to meaningfully engage and have their voices heard in national, regional, and global fora. During the conference, the Youth Network placed a particular importance on the promotion of Peace Education, with a special focus on education for resilience, peaceful resolution of conflicts and post-conflicts reconstruction.
