Secretary-General's Message for International Youth Day, 12 August 2012

Secretary-General's Message for International Youth Day, 12 August 2012 | We Believe in Young People | Scoop.it

Young men and women are not passive beneficiaries, but equal and effective partners. Their aspirations extend far beyond jobs; youth also want a seat at the table — a real voice in shaping the policies that shape their lives. We need to listen to and engage with young people. We need to establish more and stronger mechanisms for youth participation. The time has come to integrate youth voices more meaningfully into decision-making processes at all levels.
