Bordeaux Summer School - Africa’s populations by 2050

June 24th - June 28th, 2024

Challenges and potentials: interdisciplinary insights

This online summer school is designed for graduate and doctoral students as well as post-doctoral fellows involved and interested in the unique challenges and opportunities facing populations in Africa in the coming decades. By 2050, it is estimated that 2.4 billion people will be living on the African continent, 50% of which will be aged 25 years or less. Challenges include: rapid urbanisation within a context of limited economic growth, increasing vulnerability to climate change, uncontrolled road traffic and the expansion of polluting industries. Youth in Africa also carries huge potential for innovation and entrepreneurship, increased political stability, and environmental sustainability.
