Symposium of the Guinean Youth of the Diaspora
Chicago, Illinois (USA), Saturday July 14, 2012
Holiday Inn and Suites Chicago O’Hare Rosemont
10233 West Higgins Road, Rosemont, Illinois 60018
Theme: « Guinean Youth and Development »
The overarching objective of the Organization of the North American Symposium on Guinea (ONASG) is to provide Guineans of North America and elsewhere with the opportunity to meet and reflect upon the problems facing their country and envision solutions thereto. ONASG strives to create a framework for the production of high-quality intellectual works to guide our participation in the promotion of national dialogue, democratic governance, and sustainable development in Guinea.
At ONASG’s First International Symposium, held on March 5, 2011, in Silver Spring, Maryland (USA), the panel on “Youth, Gender, National Dialogue, Citizen Participation, and Sustainable Development in Guinea” made pertinent suggestions regarding the responsibilities of the Guinean youth toward solving the challenges facing the country. One such suggestion, by Oumar Telly Diallo of Guineeview (host of “The Voice of the African Youth”), pertains to a special program on youth participation in democratic governance and the creation of a Guinean youth national council.
In the spirit of those suggestions, ONASG is pleased to cordially invite you to the First Symposium of the Guinean Youth of the Diaspora that it organizes July 14, 2012, at the Holiday Inn Suites, Chicago-O’Hare (Rosemont) 10233 West Higgins Road, Rosemont, Illinois 60018 on the topic “Guinean Youth and Development.” The agenda of the symposium is forthcoming.
