The Active Citizenship Award honors young Africans (aged 15 to 35) who go above and above their civic responsibilities to maintain democracy, enhance access to basic amenities, achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, or improve the quality of life in their communities/countries in Africa. The goal of the award is to encourage young people to take action on a regular basis that helps to the upholding of democracy and the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
