The Augsburg community is invited to join CGEE in welcoming Pinias Kashedi, Global Faculty from Namibia, on campus! He will be hosting a talk about the marginalization of youth in Southern Africa, titled, “Education Capture and Youth Marginalization in Namibia.” A brief description is below:
In 2023, economic opportunities for young people in Namibia are drying up. The country is facing nearly 90,000 unemployed graduates, many with advanced educational qualifications, in a nation with a total population of approximately 2.5 million. With one of the highest unemployment rates in Africa, there is a prevailing belief among Namibian youth that political activism does not yield results.
Colonial and social injustices are a factor to these contemporary issues, but also an inherited education system which perpetuates economic and social marginalization of young people. What measures, if any, is the Namibian government undertaking to address these pressing concerns? Mr. Kashedi will expound upon these matters from his point of view as a Namibian citizen who has worked with youth for many years, during this captivating “GlobalEd” talk right here at Augsburg University.
When: Wednesday, September 20th
Time: 3:40 p.m.
Where: OGC 100
ALL are welcome to attend! We appreciate an RSVP, but it is not required.
