The population of most of countries in the world is dominated by youth. It shows that the vision of countries lies in the hands of our youth. Youth are filled with towering ambitions, optimistic attitude, and they are fully dedicated. However, given these facts, youth are often seen as people who are too old to be irresponsible, yet they’re too young to assume responsibilities. In some places, youth are still having a hard time grasping the essence of participation.
It is wise enough to give some spaces for youth to contribute. Youth are the next generation. As such, they’re the ones who will run the future. This International Youth Day 2018 is a reminder for all of us that youth participation means respect for everyone’s rights to participate. We deserve to be heard because our opinions are central in policy making. On top of these, youth participation is never useless, but a fruitful attempt to protect our prosperity. We leave this with a quote by Ir. Soekarno, the first president of The Republic of Indonesia, “give me 10 youth, and I can change the world.”
In this chance, we would like to invite you to come to our open discussion with several Youth leaders, Jay the Founder of ASEAN Youth Organization, Fajar from Polyglot Indonesia and Ichad, Abang None Jakarta 2018. We will discuss about “Safe Space for Youth” and sharing our experience with other, then we will continue with Fun gaming, laugh and networking. Don’t worry guys, drinks and snacks on us!
Opps… one more thing! If you register, please come! This is part of our responsibility and commitment as Youth. It will be FREE but the seat is limited, so grab your space fast!
If you have any question, please contact Edward 085773206096 or Demie 081210220936, and if you want to cancel your participation, kindly inform us a day before, so we can give the opportunity to other friends 🙂
