Child & Youth Finance International Global Summit

Jun 19, 2019 - Jun 20, 2019 | Johannesburg, South Africa

Economic Citizenship and Employment: A Future for All

The theme of the Summit, "Economic Citizenship and Employment: A Future for All" highlights the importance of Economic Citizenship Education and inclusion as it relates to helping youth earn livelihoods.

Economic Citizenship Education (ECE) and financial access have seen much progress in the past years, with national strategies being developed and implemented in greater and greater numbers around the world.

More than ever, innovation and joint actions are being undertaken in the fields of financial inclusion and Economic Citizenship Education are delivered, measured and reinvigorated.

This Summit will bring together senior representatives from governments, the development community, financial institutions, other private sector actors, civil society and youth.

Together these stakeholders will deliberate and highlight these innovations whilst also exploring how they can be leveraged and enhanced to address the yet unresolved, but crucial challenge of youth unemployment and therefore meaningful economic citizenship/participation.
