Mobilizing Youth on Data for Action and Transformation in Africa (MY DATA) is an emerging network and community of practice that brings together organizations and initiatives working to directly engage and mobilize youth in data generation, advocacy, and leadership to advance the Sustainable Development Goals in Africa by 2030.
The current youth bulge in the Global South presents a unique opportunity to leverage the entrepreneurial spirit and drive that many young people exhibit, and mobilize an entire generation towards data generation, use, and decision making. Such efforts can complement existing initiatives to realize the SDGs while generating new and innovative approaches at the local and regional levels.
SDSN Youth, in collaboration with the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), is convening a network of government, business, civil society, and academic partners working to directly engage and mobilize youth in data generation, advocacy, and leadership to advance sustainable development in Africa by 2030. This multi-sector network will facilitate the creation of a community of practice around mobilizing youth on data for sustainable development.
