The effort to ignite social capital for innovation and transformation of any society depends on its ability to invest in youth development. This requires both sharpening activism that interconnect with the societal challenges and make a meaningful contribution. It is in this context that igniting purposeful activism is equal to connect intellectual development relevant to unmask the vestiges that deprive development.

These vestiges or anti-development must be contextualising as depravation of people centric development. Nelson Mandela Annual Youth Convention is presented to build a conscience citizenry that understand the features of democracy and how it functions in the context of social rights and inclusiveness.

This strategy would also consolidate social justice discourse and social enterprise amongst youth. It is therefore that youth people are invited to shape the course of the struggle for continental prosperity.
