Letter by Deputy Secretary General
"The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create" - Barack Obama.
Empowerment is a necessary process for inculcating values to equip the learner, lead a life that is satisfying to the individual's well-being, in accordance with the cherished values and ideals of the society. Their learning goes beyond addressing situations through their beliefs, values and attitudes.
Pursued by promoting youth rights, youth activism and in community decision making. It examines various independent dimensions- psychological, community organizational, economic, social and cultural. The former United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon once said -"Youth are more than victims of poverty and economic downturn. They can be agents of change."
Thirty four percent of India's gross national income is contributed by the youth. There is a dire need to develop this percentage as seventy percent of people are below the age of forty years. Youth empowerment in any development is imperative not only for national development of an entire country but also for personal development. Young people play a crucial role as agents for change and the potential of young people's contributions to sustainable human development must not be ignored. With more than 1.8 billion young people in the world today- 90 percent of who live in developing countries addressing the diverse needs of youth is critical to ending poverty and promoting equality.
On behalf of the DebCon MUN Society, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the Youth of today to empower our conference DebCon 2020.
"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future."
