GC-AFR offers the African youth a virtual platform to discuss opportunities and challenges related to digital technologies in the African region. Through this platform, youth will be able to share with the ITU Membership their interests, concerns, and perspectives on digital transformation, in particular in the context of the upcoming World Telecommunication Development Conference 2022 (WTDC-22) and the Generation Connect Global Youth Summit to be held in 2022.

This initiative was launched in November 2020, in line with the ITU Youth Strategy which aims to improve and have a real impact on the lives of young people around the world and to ensure meaningful participation of youth in ITU as key stakeholders in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
