Based on the Online Activity 2020 “East Africa Youth Consultation Forum”, participants met multiple times in virtual sessions. Thus, more than 200 changemakers participated, representing countries such as Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Sudan, Nigeria, Somali-land, Malawi, and Rwanda.

The strategic objective was to provide a collaborative, open, and inclusive space for young people to critically and objectively reflect on the progress made; challenges encountered; and prospects for enhancing meaningful youth participation in COVID-19 mitigation and economy recovery.

The final report illustrates how the organizers pursued their goal to create linkages between sub-national, national, and regional youth networks as well as strengthen the bond between the different domestic groups of the network.
