WACREN Youth Day 2021: Youth and Digital Transformation in Africa





Digital Transformation is a subject that needs no introduction because the phenomenon is sweeping across the whole world; Africa is not exempted.

Digital has become a necessity for the advancement of economies, more especially education in countries across Africa. The COVID pandemic has catalysed the speed of digital transformation in this part of the world. A vital stakeholder of this digital change is the youth in every country.  

Question? Are various countries fashioning their digital future with the youth in mind? Moreso, are the youth been integrated into this process? How far are they in this plan? 

At the WACREN Youth Day 2021, we will be relishing very insightful conversations on this pertinent subject matter in the context of West and Central Africa, and by extension Africa. As national research and education networks (NRENs) play a crucial role in the digitalisation of the education sector, we will be thinking, talking and agreeing on how these RENs can rope youth into fostering their agenda.

Register, pull a chair and chat about the Youth and Digital Transformation in Africa on 17th March 2021.
