Today is the chance to celebrate and mainstream youth voices, projects, initiatives, actions and recognise the equal, universal and meaningful participation and engagement. As well as importance of peer support and learning, to underline the importance for youth to participate in social, economic and political life and its processes, both local and global.
In order to stress that youth engagement at any level enriches dialogue, contribution and inspiration to all sectors of society, with a fresh, new and energetic perspective of the masters of the future, and that should be further enhanced, supported and empowered, by the enactment of real and tailored youth policies going from the local communities all the way to our whole planet. A good starting point can be that of a renewed confidence-building effort between youth and public institutions, at local level in the public system, but also in the global governance systems, treaties and organisations if they are to regain global relevance and be legitimate flag bearers for our planet’s community, and that should start with youth. That means creating the infrastructures, locally and globally that enhance participation, active citizenship, enabling competences to oversee improvements in fairness, democracy and sustainability.
For that purpose Rescogita is among those who is joining the #31DaysOfYOUth, campaign, fostering intergenerational dialogue.
