Date: Monday 10 July 2017

Time: 10h-11h

Place: Marriot Hotel, Zamalek, Cairo


Leading debaters from Egypt have been invited to showcase their work at the “Youth and Employability in MENA: Better Skills, More Jobs” conference taking place in Cairo on 9-10 July 2017. The conference, which aims at helping connect youth to jobs, create new business, or manage periods of unemployment, is co-organized by the Anna Lindh Foundation, the World Bank, CMI, AFD, UNIMED and the Egyptian Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation.

A special session will be held on Monday 10 July at 10h as part of the official programme of the conference where five  young leaders will discuss the role of job creation in building peaceful societies.

The session is being organized in association with Young Mediterranean Voices”, the region’s flag-ship debate programme that was recently announced for expansion by the European Commission and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Federica Mogherini. Young Mediterranean Voices builds on the success of its forerunner Young Arab Voices, co-created in 2011 by the Anna Lindh Foundation and British Council, and aims to transform youth policy from debate into action with the backing of the EU and a new consortium of partners, including the World Leadership Alliance-Club de Madrid, Centre for Mediterranean Integration (CMI), World Bank Group, Government of Finland, MEDAC, Facebook and Friends of Europe.
