MSU's Youth Empowerment Program is collaborating with the Global Youth Innovation Network to host the second annual Youth Leadership Summit in East Lansing from May 16-18, 2019. Background at present, 1.8 billion of the world's population are youth between the ages of 10 and 24. Eighty seven percent of these young people live in less developed countries. The energy and innovative capacities of these young people, especially concentrated as they are in countries whose overall populations are more youthful, offer potential for economic prosperity, if invested in. The unprecedented levels of unemployment and disenfranchisement is a critical challenge, one that is no longer a concern for the future. It is here, staring all of us in the face and worsening the longer we wait to act. Today, it no longer matters where you live, the burdens of unemployment, migration, rising inequality and decreasing democratization is affecting all of us. For too many, being young means being unemployed, excluded from decision-making, limited in their access to productive resources such as financing and land - and, as a result, more vulnerable to unemployment, poverty and sometimes violence and acts of extremism. It is in response to this crisis that MSU's Youth Empowerment Program is collaborating with the Global Youth Innovation Network to host the second annual Youth Leadership Summit in East Lansing from July 13-15, 2018. The inaugural Youth Agribusiness, Leadership and Entrepreneurship Summit on Innovation summit occurred in Dakar, Senegal in 2016. While the summit was very successful, with over 250 youth in attendance from over 30 countries, one of the major critiques of the event was that the summit did not provide enough opportunities for the youth to operate as full contributors and to fully show-case and express themselves. Young people are asking for a place at the table and have some common recurring requests that the 2018 summit is seeking: Infrastructure, such as youth innovation labs and technology hubs to promote skill acquisition within countries An enabling environment that promotes youth livelihoods in the agri-food system and other sectors in the broader economy A medium to effectively advocate for access to finance, electricity, land, training, and other resources necessary for them to succeed ]]>
