Where: Kisumu, Kenya
Please note that participants should plan to stay between the afternoons of May 2 and May 4, workshop hosts will provide a travel and lodging stipend.
What: The workshop will introduce the topic of the demographic dividend, and teach participants about evidence-based policy communication. Participants will learn how to define policy goals, identify target audiences, and craft communication objectives. Participants will ultimately be able to translate how investments in young people’s health, education, and job growth are critical to Kenya achieving a demographic dividend.
