Nigerian Youth Speak Forum 2016 themed Leading Transformational Change In Nigeria is set to hold on Friday, September 23, 2016 at Glory View Hotel, Bodija Housing Estate, Ibadan.

It is commonly said in Nigeria that "the youths are the leaders of tomorrow". By 2030, Nigeria is estimated to be one of the few countries in the world that will likely have a bountiful supply of young workers with the youths accounting for over 43% of the population. This means that there are currently over 72 million youths in the country, Thus, youths more than oil, could be Nigeria’s asset in the following decades.

The theme is focused on Transformational Leadership, and the essence of leading transformational change by closely assessing Nigeria’s most pressing challenges as regards some of the crucial global goals for sustainable development, we will also assess the role of youth in making changes by committing to action to make a true impact.

Given the context of 2016, we will seek to answer the following questions:

-What kind of leadership is needed to solve the most pressing national challenges?

-What can we learn from transformational leaders and organizations that have positively disrupted their sectors to make massive impact and social change?

-What is the role of Nigerian youth in the 2016 generation to lead transformational change?

The Youth for Global Goals (Y4GG) was launched at the UN opening, it is an initiative of AIESEC as its contribution towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The Y4GG phases are: YouthSpeak Survey, YouthSpeak Insights, YouthSpeak Forum and the YouthSpeak Project.

Venue: Glory View Hotel, Bodija Housing Estate, Ibadan
