Youths Are Leaders Of Today, Tomorrow – UN Chief

UN, Guterres
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says that young people are leaders of today in addition to being leaders of tomorrow.

He said this at the ongoing  annual Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum at the UN headquarters in New York.
Guterres said: “Young people are leaders of today, not just tomorrow. A warm welcome to everyone at the ECOSOC Youth Forum”.
Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed in her advice for youth early in their career said: “Young people should make some noise, take action and call for accountability for the SDGs.
“With their involvement we will succeed with the 2030 Agenda. Work hard, thank those who help you and be grateful for the journey.”

The UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth Ms Jayathma Wickramanayake, tasked the older people to not only give youth a seat at the table but give them the table.
“Don’t only give the 1.8 billion young a seat at the table, give them the table. It’s their future more than many others,” Wickramanayake said.
“In many countries we make up the majority of the population- the largest ever seen. If the world’s problems are to be solved, it’s not going to happen without us.”
