Hi To all of you,

I think the best way to promote youth participation in governance must start by putting in youth's mind that they are not a weight but a potential and that they still a word to say in their country's Management. Because in many, african countries, particularly in Cameroon many young people have already surrender thinking that governance is for the others. That's why over 70% of young cameroonians don't vote during electoral issues. And that's a pity.
But we are in my organisation are looking of the best way to involve young people to participate actively in the next presidential elections next year.

Its high time that youth in Africa demand Vibrant Democratic Institutions and Governments. Young people need to pivotal role and actively participate in national elections as well as in resisting and reporting corrupt practices. Zimbabwe has been held at ransom for more than ten years now due to lack of transparency, bad governance and exploitation of young people by ruthless and corrupt politicians. Lets do something colleagues

Youth civic engagement and youth participation in governance is important because youth form a large part of our society - according to the Nepalese definition of youth (ages 16 – 40) it is almost 40% of the population.

Therefore any development without their active engagement is incomplete and unsustainable. Being such a large segment, it is necessary not only to get their perspectives on social issues, but also for them to take ownership for common spaces and inspire others to contribute to social change.

For this it is important to participate youth civic issues as well as governance.

I am please to be part of this group as Restless Development promote youth participation in Governance and civic education.


young people we give leadership to our leaders to govern us. we have what it takes to make thing work the way it should. We only need to syncronise our thought.

Most of us may aware of the Governance system recently onfolding in Africa and other part of the world. rigging, refusal to handover power, changing constitutions, perpetrating violence among youth people, exclusion of young people in active participation and holding key decision making body.


We need to coordinate our effort our effort with the other groups especially the GYAC Africa Group and the Task Force Members.
