press release

#YouthMonth2019 - Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubani, and the executives of the Gauteng Provincial Government, will host a dialogue with youth from the Gauteng Province to commemorate Youth Month.

Themed 25 years of Democracy: A celebration of Youth Activism, the dialogue will afford the youth an opportunity to engage with the Minister and the executives of the Gauteng Provincial Government on socio-economic issues, as well as the employment and entrepreneurship opportunities in the tourism sector.

Every year South Africa dedicates the month of June to commemorate the Soweto uprising, and to honour the learners who stood up against the apartheid government on 16 June 1976. Tourism will host the Youth Dialogue in celebration of the legacy of the youth of 1976, and as a call to the youth to actively participate in the initiatives borne off the gains of democracy.

The event will feature exhibitions by organisations and government entities such as the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA), the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Education Training Authority (CATHSSETA), Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA) and the National Empowerment Fund (NEF).
