Creating a World for All Ages
"Today, we celebrate International Youth Day, and the power of partnerships across generations. This year’s theme —
Creating a World for All Ages” —
reminds us of a basic truth: we need people
of all ages, young and old alike, to join
forces to build a better world for all."

"Too often, ageism, bias and discrimination prevent this essential collaboration. When young people are shut out of the decisions being made about their lives, or when older people are denied a chance to be heard, we all lose.
Solidarity and collaboration are more essential than ever, as our world faces a series of challenges that threaten our collective future.
From COVID-19 to climate change, to conflicts, poverty, inequality and discrimination, we need all hands on deck to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and build the better, more peaceful future we all seek.
We need to support young people with massive investments in education and skills-building — including through next month’s Transforming Education Summit.
We also need to support gender equality and expanded opportunities for young people to participate in civic and political life.
It’s not enough to listen to young people — we need to integrate them into decision-making mechanisms at the local, national and international levels.
This is at the heart of our proposal to establish a new Youth Office at the United Nations.
And we need to ensure that older generations have access to social protection and opportunities to give back to their communities and share the decades of lived experience they have accumulated.
On this important day, let’s join hands across generations to break down barriers, and work as one to achieve a more equitable, just and inclusive world for all people."

The Youth of the Future
"YOUTH ACTION MATTERS!"
"YOUTH AROUND THE WORLD"
are making profound statements backed by valuable, concerted action! And as that
well-known catchy phrase,
"ONE FOR ALL AND ALL FOR ONE"
yet holds true in the 21st century, younger
citizens are bonding closer together to address and tackle the full spectrum
of global issues that are already
affecting and impacting
their present and future lives.
The resounding voices of youth are being
heard loud and clear! And governing entities Around the World
are paying attention.
"One for all and all for one" can certainly be
viewed as a "togetherness" that must
include "young and old alike!"
After all, our world consists of peoples
"of all ages!" Thus, all ages throughout
every generation must work closer
together: learning, sharing and
partnering - while diligently
laying a solid foundation
with viable efforts for a
better world . . . for all!
