ECOSOC: Youth Empowerment: A Key Role for Local Community and Society Development
During the past few years, youth participation in political and social activities has changed constantly. A significant progress can be seen from the involvement of youth in participating in some political agendas and social movements. There are many platforms that they create in order to make an impact to the local community and international society. In some developing countries, youth has become an active contributor to economic growth and society development. The need to empower the youth is essential to national development as important as assisting the young people to collect aspirations to the policy-making agenda. The border of each nation is no longer relevant as globalization brings a new dimension to the international order. With that being said, youth empowerment is a new agenda to the international community.
