With technological innovation increasingly playing a central role in social and economic development, young people are positioning themselves as key actors in creating tools and strategies for achieving equitable, sustainable development.

In this episode of the ‘Beyond School Books’ podcast series, UNICEF’s Alex Goldmark speaks with three young African innovators: Wayetu Moore of One Moore Book, Catherine Kipsang of politk.com and Timothy Kaboya of ELE Rwanda. The three recently participated in a UNICEF-organized event showcasing Africa’s young innovators, which focused on individuals looking for home-grown solutions to everyday problems.
