Most young Africans want to leave continent – survey


A new survey suggests that two thirds of young African people are not optimistic about the direction of their country or continent – but remain positive about their personal futures.


Researchers conducted more than 4,000 face-to-face interviews across 15 countries for the African Youth Survey.


More than half said they wanted to emigrate in the next few years, while nearly 80% planned to start their own business.

They said governments should prioritise creating well-paid jobs, reducing corruption and fighting climate change to help Africa progress.
