Should we participate for the sake of participation or should it be because we have something very key to say? Are the issues we are raising any different from what the older generation is raising? Do we need to be involved if what we are raising similar to what is being raised by them? The recent clamor for youth participation can almost be compared to the fight for women involvement in influencing development during the 19th century. Young people are coming out in large numbe...

Youth around the world must have so many likes and dislikes. Moreover, youth go through a phase when young people have so many ideas and have great power. However, this is also a phase when so many young people confuse themselves in what field they fit the most in. Finally, the bad impacts that come from this condition appear. Young people often do and learn something. They rarely put their best and make it until the finish line. They often feel stressed if a problem arises and the...

If I was Ban for a month, my key priorities would be to eradicate global hunger and extreme poverty, end all brutal killings associated with power and politics and then hold dialogue with terrorists; try and understand what their deal is and find a way of ending their unacceptable behaviors. So if suddenly I found myself at the helm of the United Nations with all the power and influence that come with being the UNSG (United Nations Secretary General), I would make sure the above me...

The idea of diversity is like any other idea because it has a good side and a bad side. In each country that has diverse people it could be a source of problems but it might also be a healthy thing.

They believe in preventing and keeping their traditions which was obvious when they held the last W...

“Why is it important for children & youth to have a voice in business”. This question sounds really rare and successfully makes me think deeply about the answer.
