Why Just Cities are needed in Africa

Africa's urban population will double over the next 25 years. By 2040 at the latest, a majority of all Africans will be living in cities. Given this development, it is apparent that democratic political legitimacy will increasingly hinge on a socially and gender-equitable provision of public goods and economic opportunities in African cities.

Youth Leadership Development Program

As Democracy needs Democrats, Democrats must have the capacities and share the same behavioural and ethical standards to take responsibility as Namibian citizens and servants. With the median age in Namibia being 21, youth is the pillar of the current and the future society. Youth must be empowered to defend democratic achievements and values, strengthen, and form alliances and networks in participating in socioeconomic and political development and debates in their communities. This is a precondition for a prosperous society.

Unpacking the issues towards Gender Justice in Namibia 2022

The Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) has been working for more than 40 years with its partners on the African continent to transform unjust social and economic contexts, to further the democratization of political and economic structures and to build conditions for democratic transformative change. Historically, social democracy has aimed at the emancipation of the working class and a free society based on solidarity that offers everyone an equal opportunity for economic, social, and cultural participation. Its major political struggles - fighting for worker’s rights, peace and international solidarity as well as for social justice and a fair distribution of power and wealth – are inextricably linked to gender justice. This video is about an event organized by the Namibia office and looks at gender justice in Namibia.
