2020 Theme:

Youth Engagement for . . .

GLOBAL ACTION!

"As the United Nations turns 75, and with only 10 years remaining to make the 2030 Agenda a reality for all, trust in public institutions is eroding. At the international level, against the backdrop of an increasingly polarized world, the international system of governance is currently undergoing a crisis of legitimacy and relevance. In particular, this crisis is rooted in the need to strengthen the capacity of the international system to act in concert and implement solutions to pressing challenges and threats (examples include some of the worst contemporary conflicts and humanitarian emergencies, such as Syria and Myanmar, as well as global challenges, such as the COVID-19 outbreak and climate change).

Enabling the engagement of youth in formal political mechanisms does increase the fairness of political processes by reducing democratic deficits, contributes to better and more sustainable policies, and also has symbolic importance that can further contribute to restore trust in public institutions, especially among youth. Moreover, the vast majority of challenges humanity currently faces, such as the COVID-19 outbreak and climate change require concerted global action and the meaningful engagement and participation of young people to be addressed effectively."

Stark Realities for . . .

Future Generations

Already With Us Today!

"YOUTH ACTION MATTERS!"

Twenty years into the 21st Century and already the world has faced - and is yet facing - unprecedented events that are compelling unity of Nations great

and small!  And that force of joining

together is including scores of   . . .

"YOUTH AROUND THE WORLD"

making profound statements backed by

"GLOBAL ACTION!"

The global community of Nations should be very proud to evidence youthful concerns being brought to the forefront:  all in genuine

efforts to preserve a world wherein 

a continuation of a viable and

sustainable existence can survive;

not only for them, but for many

more generations to come!

Youthful action is taking the reigns to lead

the  way!  Even  younger children  are  more

aware of our environment, climate change,

global poverty, the need for quality

healthcare, education and jobs

that lead to financial stability

for family longevity and happiness.

The COVID-19 pandemic is imposing a harmful 

and dangerous detriment to all peoples the

world.   In this medical crisis, youthful ideas

and ingenuity cannot be ignored.  The old

and wise saying, 'A child shall lead' must

be considered.   Why?  Because our

youth of today know - and

even understand much more than

older adults acknowledge them for. 

 

Keep in mind when we're on some 'techy stumbling block' . . . just ask a five-year

old to help you solve the problem! 

And as for governance and institutions intended for the wholesome development and sustain-

ability of "Humanity Around the World," 

youthful action is demanding "just &

lawful governance with

JUSTICE FOR ALL!"

The world must be mindful that "The Youth 

of Today Are the Leaders of Tomorrow:" 

already demonstrating

with promising potential, confidence

and peaceful coordination that

"YOUTH ACTION MATTERS . . .

. . . IN EVERY PLACE

AROUND THE WORLD!"
