Voices of Youth is a space for youth to read and see about specific issues, as well as provide their opinion or address issues throughout the world to the public. Every day we see an issue that really affects us within our own community. However, someone somewhere else doesn’t see the same thing, as they are seeing something else. This is the point of the Voices of Youth, for us to connect and share problems throughout the world.

Five different places, from the United Nations in New York, India, Burnaby School District, Mexico, and Philipp...

To achieve the goal for Subtheme E, “Education for All”, we should not focus just on specific areas to put this objective into action. This should encompass a worldwide scale. It is important to note that yes, people in certain areas have it worse than others. However, as mentioned earlier, we shouldn’t limit it to just those areas.
