Youth as an Engine of Change

Achieving a demographic dividend is a key ingredient to achieving the ICPD Programme of Action overall. In many countries, harnessing a demographic dividend can offer major solutions to myriad challenges facing young people today, including access to education, ability to enter the workforce, and ability to save for old age. But countries cannot harness the demographic dividend or achieve the ICPD PoA without the meaningful involvement of young people at every stage in the process. This session will therefore seek to highlight the roles that youth can play to help their countries realize the ICPD Programme of Action, with a specific focus on actions they can take to harness the demographic dividend.

FILM - Pili

With introduction by Sophie Harman, Producer. Pili lives in rural Tanzania, working the fields for less than $2 a day to feed her two children and struggling to manage her HIV-positive status in secret. When she is offered the chance to rent a sought-after market-stall, Pili is desperate to have it. But with only two days to get the deposit together, Pili is forced to make increasingly difficult decisions with ever-deepening consequences. How much will she risk to change her life? Pili is the first ever social-realist feature film to focus on women living with HIV in East Africa. It is one of the few films made in Africa that features an ensemble female cast and that uses almost entirely non-actors. The process of making the film was also unique. From the close collaboration with the women throughout the development of the story, to the casting process and the mixture of improvisation and scripted techniques used during the shoot. Pili is a singular collaboration between the filmmakers and the community, to tell the story of the community by the people who live there. Drama/UK/Swahili/83 minutes/2017 Director: Leanne Welham Producer: Sophie Harman
