Introduction

The Young African Writing Contest (YAWC) is one of the initiatives that ECOSOCC is spearheading to bridge the gap between African Youth and the Union. It is predicted that the population of young Africans will double from the current 480 million to reach 840 million by 2050 and Africa will have the youngest population in the world. By acknowledging the innovative thinking that they bring to the table, YAWC aims to encourage the youth to reflect on the crucial role they play by providing them with a space to express themselves freely. “My Africa, My Future” will articulate their aspirations and ideals for the kind of future they want for the continent.
