Based on a number of inspiring examples from African cities, this event will show how creative strategies, such as music festivals, film and TV productions, can be used as effective strategies for young people to participate in urban governance. The event will be conduced as a creative and participatory experince including networking activities, games, inspiring presentations and live performances. The event will be facliated directly by young people from urban Africa.
