    African Millennial Dialogue Roundtable

    Venue: Wits Club, West Campus, 1 Jan Smuts Ave University of the Witwatersrand Johannesburg 2000

     May 20 2016

    The Mapungubwe Institute (MISTRA) together with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), Global Progressive Forum (GPF) and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) will be hosting a roundtable discussion on 20 May 2016 at WITS Club that will focus on the priorities and values of the Millennial generation. 
    FEPS in partnership with GPF and Centro de Estudos Estratégicos e Internacionais (CEEI), recently commissioned a groundbreaking study to better understand the political attitudes of young people, aged between 15 – 35 years in three African countries – Senegal, Mozambique and South Africa. The Millennial Dialogue, a global initiative of FEPS aims to engage and create a better understanding of this demographic. In this context online surveys were conducted across six continents, with over 20 000 young people interviewed. The key findings of this project will be presented and discussed at this roundtable.
    The Millennial Dialogue is a global initiative amongst progressive think tanks ,looking into why young people are commonly misconceived as politically disengaged when compared to their parents or older generation.
    “Millennials are shifting conventional wisdom on political engagement”
    “Most young people are skeptical of institutions and unlikely to identify with political parties, they are also more progressive than previous generations”
    "What does this all mean for political engagement as we know it? How do African millennials compare with their peers in Europe and around the world?"
