About the Bright Young Minds Show on Future Cities Africa
Africa has the youngest population in the world. By 2030, young Africans are expected to make up 42 percent of the world's youth and account for 75 percent of the those under age 35 in Africa.
Young peoples' experiences, ideas, choices and preferences help shape the future of cities.
The 'Bright Young Minds show' gives a voice to some of the brightest young minds to share their thought leadership, how they solve problems, their vision for future cities, how we can achieve this vision, and give hope to a younger generation.
Youth is the future of African cities.
