CONNECT

Gavin Weale
CEO

An offshoot of Livity UK, one of the United Kingdom’s most celebrated social enterprises, Livity Africa helps young people develop skills in content creation, media, marketing, digital, and business entrepreneurship in order to connect them with employment opportunities for the future. The organization also works with clients, such as Google, Red Bull, and the British Council Connect ZA, to deliver creative youth-focused campaigns and generate opportunities for a unique pool of young talent.

Through youth-created content – including their flagship product, Live Magazine SA – Livity Africa also provides a platform for young people to engage with civic life through the creation of influential content that is seen by thousands of their peers. Ahead of the national elections of 2014, Livity Africa is at the helm of a youth-led multi-platform campaign that will foster and sustain the involvement of 18- to 25-year-olds in South Africa’s democratic process.
