You are cordially invited for the workshop ‘Youth perspective: Identifying solutions for youth employment in Ghana’ on Tuesday 17 August from 08:30 at the HOPin Academy, Tamale, Ghana.


This workshop is part of the African Policy Dialogue on Youth Employment, a collaboration between INCLUDE Knowledge Platform, the University of Ghana Legon – Economics Department, the Ghana Netherlands Business and Culture Council (GNBCC) and the Netherlands African Business Council (NABC). Partners for this event are Nestlé Ghana and the Netherlands Embassy in Ghana. The workshop is a follow-up meeting on the way forward for youth employment in Ghana, based on the initial research by Prof. Baah-Boateng. The insights of the kick-off meeting in September 2020 were gathered in the following report.


This workshop will build on the insights by identifying durable solutions for addressing youth employment in Ghana. As a participant, you will strengthen their knowledge on the employment landscape in Ghana and you will be able to share your valuable insights. Moreover, you will be able to expand your network through the various presentations and the attending participants. In addition, your perspective and insights will feed into the upcoming workshops with the private sector and the media (September 2021, Accra). The input gathered during the workshop will feed into the policy brief that will be presented to policy makers in public and private institutions both in Ghana and in the Netherlands.
