Young people bring energy, capacity and ingenuity to economies and communities. Yet 73 million young people across the globe continue to look for work without many opportunities. Innovative initiatives, such as the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme in Pakistan, as well as community driven initiatives in Canada, are paving a path to increase economic opportunities for young people.
October 20-24, 2014 – This October Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) is hosting a discussion between experts and practitioners working to create economic opportunities for youth. The discussion marks AKFC’s 10th University Seminar Series and will be followed by an interactive workshop. The goal is to spur important conversations on how we can create economic opportunities for youth and ensure that the voices of young people across Canada are heard in this critical global debate.
