This is a fruit of the ILCAA International Zoom Symposium: How Are Young People in Africa Thinking and Living?: Education, Unemployment, Aesthetics, Politics, and Singleness. It was held on 22nd November in 2020. Due to the spread of the Covid-19, it was not possible to hold a face-to-face symposium, but we were able to connect online with scholars from African countries, Denmark, Poland, and India, and had lively discussions.
