The European Business Council for Africa

Think Africa in collaboration with Ubuntu Film Club and OPAD are organising an exciting and empowering event for youths of African background living in Finland. The event through film and discussions provides a safe space for youths to share their views of Africa, their identity and experiences in Finland, and their wishes and role in Africa’s development.

Target audience is youths between the ages 16 - 25, but all interested are welcome to attend.

Registered participants will enter a raffle to win a nice surprise :)

This event serves as the Launch event for Think Africa’s youth-focused program for 2021, which will provide a space and set of activities that will create cultural awareness, address identity related issues and provide a supporting platform where participants can share their stories, challenges, build skills, and have access to mentorship and role models.
