For a better tomorrow, we must empower young people today
As a society we face an unprecedented set of challenges. Challenges that existed before the Covid-19 crisis have been further exacerbated by the global pandemic – and the future has never felt more uncertain. We know that Covid-19 has had a huge impact on children and young people. For too many young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, their voices are excluded; and their power to make a positive difference isn’t recognised.
This has to change.
We can’t keep taking decisions about young people without young people. And by failing to support them to make a positive difference, we all lose out as a result.
Now, more than ever, we must empower young people to be changemakers. Young people are not simply the leaders of tomorrow. They have the energy, talent and ideas to make a positive difference today.
