The Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS) is pleased to announce the dates for its 2016 Annual Youth Dialogue on Elections and Governance to be held in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania on the 3rd and 4th of August 2016.
The MINDS Youth Dialogue is an annual gathering of young African leaders who have demonstrated a commitment to the development of Africa, practical involvement in elections and governance and the ability to mobilize other youth towards a set goal. At each Dialogue, we facilitate conversations between 100 youth, drawn from across the continent, and experienced African leaders with the aim of exploring the kind of Africa the youth can aspire to create for themselves.
