AFRICAN YOUTH DAY 2014

African Youth Day is marked every 1st November. The Network of African Youths for Development (NAYD)  as an organization that brings young people together for sustainable development wishes to recognize the importance of this day in shaping the present and indeed the future of Africa. Further NAYD appreciates the efforts of the African Union in putting forward the agenda of the youth and putting efforts in including the youth in formulation of this agenda.

As per the theme of the African Youth Day this year, Delivering on the Potential of Africa’s Young Women, NAYD stands for a society that is all inclusive and which allows young people regardless of their gender to thrive and use their potential to engage in community projects that fosters development in Africa. NAYD calls for all the organizations working in Africa to recognize and put in place measures that will foster an environment that allows young people to work without gender-based or other forms of discrimination.

It is indeed a timely theme with the Chibok Girls still being held hostage. It is sad that we seek to deliver, invest and let the potential of the young African woman thrive yet there are groups that continue to hinder and render useless the efforts that development actors are making. NAYD, among other organizations and individuals, has been vocal in calling out for the release of these girls. This is not the time to forget them and definitely not the time to ‘move on’. By silence we are setting precedents upon which (near)future actions will be based. As such NAYD calls upon the AU, the Nigerian Government and the International Community to take more action and #BringBackOurGirls.

As the year turns for the African Youth, NAYD reaffirms its commitment to the realization of the UN led MDGs and the Post-2015 based SDGs to see that Africa realizes it’s full potential, that people still living in abject poverty escape the poverty trap, that the activities driving development take place within the planetary limits with minimal strain on the environment and that Africa gains a standing in the global village which is not Aid-based rather of a mutual exchange with other countries. NAYD contributes to these efforts in different ways one of which is by taking the development agenda offline to the community through Country Coordinators(CCs). They are charged with the task of connecting and availing relevant information to all the youth-led CBOs and NGOs working at the community level in different projects to bring development.

It is no coincidence then that the elections of NAYD ‘s Country Officers for the next 2 years kicks off today, the 1st of November, the same day we celebrate the young African person. NAYD hopes to partner with vibrant organizations to reach the people at the grassroots because until everybody is part of the change then change will not have enough momentum to drive Africa from a ‘developing’ continent to a self sustaining continent.

Finally, NAYD calls upon the AU and the African governments to show more inclusive approach by including the youth in policy formulation and implementation. The African youth has spoken and said ‘Nothing about us without us’ The time to call the African youth to the drawing table is now. Further NAYD calls upon the youth to be proactive, to seek to address the challenges in their community, to build local, regional and international networks that will create channels for a ripple effect that will galvanize development projects in Africa.

PRESS RELEASE

WORLD SCIENCE DAY FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT: ‘PROMOTING QUALITY SCIENCE EDUCATION: ENSURING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FOR ALL’

DATE: 10 NOVEMBER 2014

World Science Day for Peace and Development (WSDPD) is an annual event celebrated worldwide every 10th of November since its establishment by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2001. It was initially proposed at the World’s Scientific Conference in Budapest in 1999 in order to draw the attention to the need of a relation between science and society.

The rationale of celebrating a WSDPD is based on the realization of the important roles that both science and scientists have in the sustainable societies. WSDPD aims to renew the national as well as the international commitment to science for peace and development and to stress the responsible use of science for the benefit of society. Besides, the WSDPD also aspires in raising public awareness on the significance of science and bridging the gap between science and societies.

In this sense, a WSDPD would offer an opportunity to show the general public the relevance of science in their lives and to engage them in discussions. Such a venture would also bring a unique perspective to the global search for peace and development.

Since its inception, World Science Day has also generated concrete projects, programs and funding for science around the world. Several ministries have announced an increase in spending on science for instance the creation of a university or research body. The Day has also helped to foster cooperation between scientists living in regions marred by conflict, one example being the creation of the Israeli-Palestinian Science Organization (IPSO) with UNESCO support.

As for this year, with the theme of ‘Promoting Quality Science Education: Ensuring a Sustainable Future for All’, World Science Day for Peace and Development has a goal of utilizing quality science education to spark students’ curiosity from an early age. It is because quality science education takes advantage of the new development in ICTs and together with basic sciences education triggering innovation that is essential to sustainable development.

Together with this year’s theme, we, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY) have held our 14th Melaka International Youth Dialogue (MIYD) to fulfill the principal opinions and roles of young people towards the Post 2015 Development Agenda on education. An interactive dialogue on this topic was of significance to form, educate, increase awareness on the challenges and entitlements of youth pertaining to Education in the different levels of society that they represent. Though our theme was emphasized on broader definition ranging from formal, informal and non formal education, this dialogue was intended to improve the quality of education which takes sustainable development into its major consideration.

World Assembly of Youth wishes you a happy World Science Day for Peace and Development!

INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ERADICATION OF POVERTY:

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ERADICATION OF POVERTY: ‘LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND: THINK, DECIDE AND ACT TOGETHER AGAINST EXTREME POVERTY’

DATE: 17TH OCTOBER 2014

 “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty”

~ Mother Teresa~ 

Poverty destroys the lives and spirit of people; it kills more children, young persons and adults than any war. Every day people living in extreme poverty are challenged and threatened by lack of food, shelter and access to essential amenities.

 The United Nations’ (UN) International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is observed on the 17th of October yearly since 1993. It promotes people’s awareness of the need to exterminate poverty and destitution worldwide particularly in developing countries.

 The first observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17th October 1987 in which more than 100,000 people gathered in Paris, France to honor the victims of extreme poverty, violence and hunger. On that day individuals and organizations globally observed the day as an opportunity to restore their dedication in working together towards eradicating poverty. In December 1992, the UN General Assembly officially declared 17th October as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

 This year the theme of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is, “Leave no one behind: think, decide and act together against extreme poverty”. The theme focuses on the insistent need to eliminate discrimination and segregation based on poverty, ethnic origin, gender, age, disability or economic and social status. Eliminating these barriers means that all people especially those living in poverty are included in decision making and acted as partners for sustainable development.

 We, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY), believe that young people should be engaged to be the agent of change representing the voice of the people who are in need.  Youth is the key towards tackling the quandary of our impecunious peers, and advancing their economic status within society. Acknowledging on that matter, we always encourage young people to be actively involved in expressing their thoughts and ideas for the betterment of policy particularly those related to eradication of poverty directly or indirectly. Areas such as youth employment and entrepreneurship have been our main focuses in creating more job opportunities not only for young people but also for those living in poverty.

 As the world commemorates the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, we call on youth and stakeholders from all countries to actively work to support the world most vulnerable and to ensure their full participation in building an inclusive post-2015 development agenda.

 Happy International Day for the Eradication of Poverty!

 WAY Secretariat

Worldview Mission Urgent urgent     Worldwe Want ronde logo images36P5E18L

 Dear Youth Advocates,

The International Day of the Girl Child 2013 is soon coming and the theme chosen this year is “Innovating for Girls’ Education”.
We are starting an E-discussion on the World We Want platform on “Innovate 2 Educate” and You are invited to participate in this new e-discussion!
Join the conversation by registering at http://www.worldwewant2015.org/education2015


The fulfillment of girls’ right to education is first and foremost an obligation and moral imperative. There is overwhelming evidence that girls’ education, especially at the secondary level, is a powerful transformative force for societies and girls themselves.

While there has been significant progress in improving girls’ access to education over the last two decades, many girls, particularly the most marginalized, continue to be deprived of this basic right. Girls in many countries are still unable to attend school and complete their education due to safety-related, financial, institutional and cultural barriers.

When girls are in school, perceived low returns from poor quality of education, low aspirations, or household chores and other responsibilities keep them from attending school or from achieving adequate learning outcomes.
Innovation will be an important strategy in addressing the nature and scale of barriers girls continue to face and in ensuring they receive an education commensurate with the challenges of the 21st century. Smart and creative use of technology is one route to overcoming gender barriers to girls’ learning and achievement, but innovation in partnerships, policies, resource utilization, community mobilization, and most of all, the engagement of young people themselves, can be important catalyzing forces.
International Day of the Girl Child is an international observance day declared by the United Nations in 2011 and celebrated annually on 11 October.

In recognition of the importance of fresh and creative perspectives to propel girls’ education forward, the theme of International Day of the Girl Child for 2013 will be: Innovating for Girls’ Education. UNICEF as a leading agency for the coordination of the theme and related events is starting a new e-discussion with a similar theme, on the World We Want online platform.

The discussion will be coordinated by the Youth Advocacy Group of the United Nations Global Education First Initiative (GEFI).
The e-discussion aims to gather and learn about innovative approaches, ideas and solutions from different regions, countries and communities that help improve girls’ education and their learning outcomes, particularly of those most disadvantaged. The e-discussion will be facilitated by expert moderators and will run for three weeks from 16 September to 6 October, each week covering a new theme.

The theme of Week One is Innovation in Education Infrastructure.

Subject: [UNFCCC youth] New mentoring scheme for youth climate groups
To: <
unfccc_youth@googlegroups.com>

Hi everyone,

For the last five years the GCCA has supported youth organisations around the world to raise their voices in the climate movement. Much of this work has been based around international meetings, or in countries where the GCCA has traditionally worked. Today i’m excited to announce that we are launching applications for a new mentoring programme which hopes to offer this support to a whole load more of you wherever you are in the world. ‘Growing up’ as an activist in the climate movement I know first hand how much the support of people who have been there before can help so I hope this opportunity can help more of you access that. Read on for all the details which can also be found at www.tcktcktck.org/mentoring that’s also where you will find the application form if you want to apply. 

Also if you could share this opportunity around your networks I would really appreciate it.

Thank you all for being so amazing. In solidarity

anna  

What is the programme?

The GCCA mentoring programme aims to empower you as a young climate leader, within a youth led organisation, to build and grow both your own organization/group/project, and more broadly the climate movement in your region.

The mentoring scheme is a six month programme running from and inclusive of June – November 2014. During this time you will commit to taking part in two 90-minute sessions per month. In these you will participate in GCCA led training based on movement strategy and leadership development, as well as build a relationship with your mentor. We aim to match young people with mentors who are from their region, therefore have specific contextual knowledge. We hope this will also enable you to speak together in your ‘home’ language. However, please note that the GCCA-led training and general communication will happen in English.

The Mentoring Programme aims to:

  • Introduce you to movement strategy and equip you with leadership development tools
  • Support you to apply these tools to your local/regional movement
  • Provide you with access to assets such as networks, support, resources and experience
  • Encourage skill-sharing across the climate movement

The programme will prioritise those of you coming from countries outside of USA/Canada/UK/Australia/NZ and/or those of you from any country who face barriers to accessing leadership positions in the climate movement due to factors such as gender, ethnicity, class, education, ability etc.

The GCCA will

  • Match you with a mentor who has regional knowledge and who can communicate with you in your home language.
  • Facilitate at least one 90 minute Skype call a month with this mentor.
  • Lead one 90 minute Skype call a month with all the mentees together to work through a training programme of movement strategy and leadership development tools and resources.
  • Provide you with resources based on the training programme.
  • Provide ongoing support and communication.
  • Provide long-term support in some activities following the six month programme.

We also hope that as part of the programme we will be able to support you in meeting your mentor in person and arrange and support an in person training for everyone on the mentoring programme to come together. However we cannot confirm this at this time. 

Is it for me?

We are looking for:

  • Young people from around the world who are involved with youth-led organisations that work on climate change. We believe youth is self defining so there is no formal age limit. You could be from an organisation, a group or a project, it does not have to be a formally registered organisation, but should involve more people than just you.
  • We would love for you to apply as a pair from your organisation/group/project so you can support each other through the programme, but we will not discriminate if this is not possible for your organisation/group/project.

You will need:

  • To be able to attend Skype calls and read documents in English.
  • To commit to the full six month programme and any follow up work – so you need to be planning to be active in your organisation/group/project for that whole time.
  • To commit to one 90 minute training call with GCCA facilitators each month and one 90 minute Skype call with your mentor each month.
  • To have access to an internet connection good enough to join Skype and Google Hangouts. 

Who will the mentors be and how will you choose who is matched with who?

The mentors will come from across the GCCA network and be familiar with the climate movement in their/your region. They will come from a range of organisations, groups and projects. We cannot guarantee that your mentor has specific skills or expertise. We are approaching mentors as we receive applications so we can pick both mentors and young people based on the best matches.

How do I apply and when is the deadline?

Fill in the application form that can be found here . The deadline is May 9th, however we will be looking at applications as they come in. For those who get through to the next stage of the application process we will be in touch to arrange an interview on Skype. This will also be a chance for you to ask more questions. We aim to get back to everyone by the end of May with a response.

How do I get more info?

If you want more info, have any questions, or have any difficulties with the application please get in touch with Anna at  mentorship@tcktcktck.org

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH                                                       

PRESS RELEASE

UNITED NATIONS DAY

DATE: 24TH OCTOBER 2014 

“The United Nations is needed more than ever at this time of multiple crises. At this critical moment, let us reaffirm our commitment to empowering the marginalized and vulnerable. On United Nations Day, I call on Governments and individuals to work in common cause for the common good. “

~Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon~

 The United Nations works across countries and territories to promote common progress, charitable, environmental and sociological concerns.

 Recalling back on the history, the United Nations was known at earlier days as the League of Nations. The foundations for a League of Nations were laid in the Treaty of Versailles which was one of the treaties that formally ends World War I. The League of Nation aimed to encourage disarmament, prevent outbreaks of war, and encourage negotiations and diplomatic measures to settle international disputes and to improve the quality of life around the world. Nevertheless, the outbreak of World War II suggested that the League of Nations needed to take on a different form.

The ideas around the United Nations were developed in the last years of World War II particularly during the UN Conference on International Organization in San Francisco on April 25, 1945. The UN was officially created when a UN charter was endorsed on the 24th of October that year. On this day, the United Nations (UN) came into force when the five permanent members of the Security Council approved the charter that had been drawn up that year.

Thus, it is then understood that the United Nations Day commemorated on 24th October 1945 every year marks the anniversary of the moment when the United Nations officially came into existence. Celebrated each year since 1948, the event’s anniversary is recognized as an occasion to highlight, celebrate and reflect on the work of the United Nations and its family of specialized agencies.

We, at World Assembly Youth (WAY), owning the consultative status of various UN Agencies, celebrate the United Nations Day, because it is a vital commemoration of the values which today organizations embrace, including WAY. Those values are the forth-the principles of humanity which are unity and world peace.

Acknowledging the importance of adapting those values of humanity, we recognize the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and adopt them in our programmes, events as well as our daily activities in the Secretariat. As for this year, the United Nations Day was celebrated with a fruitful visit of 70 international and local students from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia at WAY Headquarters in Melaka, Malaysia where the topic of Youth and Education was discussed thoroughly.

Happy United Nations Day!

WAY Secretariat

Thema: [WorldYouth] Press Release: World Food Day

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

WORLD FOOD DAY:FAMILY FARMING: FEEDING THE WORLD, CARING FOR THE EARTH’

DATE: 16TH OCTOBER 2014 

If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one ~ Mother Teresa~

 There is sufficient land to grow food in the world for everyone, yet we continue to be caught in food crisis.

 Family farming is inextricably linked to national and global food security, both in developing and developed countries. Family farming is the major form of agriculture in the food production sector which is run by family and includes all family-based agricultural activities. It is greatly linked to several areas of rural development.

 World Food Day was initially held on 16th October 1981. This day is, then, celebrated on the 16th of October every year around the world in honor of the date when the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations was founded in 1945. It is also the Food Engineer day and has been observed in more than 150 countries, raising awareness of the issues pertaining to Hunger and Poverty.

 The global crisis of hunger is, today, most recognized issue, remaining the continual fight against hunger as world top prioritized mission. As for this year, the theme selected is on “Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth”. This theme has been chosen to emphasise and raise awareness of the problems worldwide and to elevate the profile of family farming and small-scale as well as medium-sized farmers. It focuses on world attention on the significant role of family in eradicating hunger and poverty, providing food security and achieving adequate nutrition for all by managing natural resources while protecting the environment and attaining sustainable development, especially in rural areas.

 At the World Assembly of Youth (WAY), we highlight areas needed for action and contribute in the recommendation for the eradication of Hunger and Poverty in accordance with the common focus stipulated by the United Nations. We aim to raise levels of nutrition across the globe, educate and enhance young people’s intellect on agricultural productivity and their understanding on its importance as well as contribution towards the wellbeing of the society, at all levels. We believe that through family agriculture, both food production and supply will be improved in the same direction with the enhancement of employment level thus reducing the rate of hunger and poverty worldwide.

 Happy World Food Day!

[WorldYouth] Press Release: International Day for Disaster 

WAY Secretariat

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR DISASTER REDUCTION: ‘OLDER PERSONS AND DISASTERS’

DATE: 13TH OCTOBER 2014

 

“We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn’t have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.”

~Petra Nemcova~ 

Disaster reduction is the conception and practice of reducing disaster risks through efficient efforts to analyse and reduce the causal factors of disasters. Reducing exposure to hazards, lessening vulnerability of people and property, wise management of land and the environment, and improving preparedness and early warning for adverse events are all examples of disaster reduction.

 The United Nations’ (UN) International Day for Natural Reduction is annually observed on the 13th of October to raise the profile of disaster risk reduction. It is a day dedicated to the efforts of the stakeholders in reducing the disasters related risks through raising awareness. It also encourages people and governments to participate in building more resilient communities and nations.

 Many people around the world have lost their lives, homes, access to essential facilities, such as hospitals, due to natural disasters, including earthquakes, droughts, tsunamis, heavy flooding, hurricanes or cyclones. Some of these disasters have even caused economic damage to certain countries. In past decade, many people have lost their beloved ones as the consequences of the Mother Nature’s rages.

 Though the occurrence of natural disaster is unstoppable, the impact of damages could be minimized through appropriate movement of disaster reduction and preparedness. In line with that, the UN acknowledges that education; training and information exchanges are effective ways to help people to equip themselves better in withstanding the natural disasters.

 This year spotlight of the International Day for Disaster Reduction is on older people, including their needs and what they contribute in better planning and understanding the disaster risk in their communities. International Day for Disaster 2014 intends to amplify this critical issue, not only for current days but also the post-2015 framework pertaining to disaster risk reduction.

 We, at the World Assembly of Youth (WAY), believe that there is a call for awareness among the societies on how to guide and care for old people both during and after the occurrence of the natural disaster. Being young and energetic, youth can play a big role during this time to assist those in need through volunteerism activity. Therefore, we advise and encourage young people to be on the vanguard in giving a helping hand to the old.  By doing so, young volunteers will have an opportunity to work together with the senior citizens to minimize the vulnerability of all, while improving communities’ capacity to cope with the impact of disasters and sustaining intergenerational relationship.

 Happy International day for Disaster Reduction!

Worldview Mission APPLY TO 2014 UN Conference on Small Island Developing States

Subject: (Post Rio+20) Fwd: 2014 UN Conference on Small Island Developing States

 TO RIO+20 NGO MAJOR GROUP

NGOs who are interested in participating in the preparatory process for the third international conference on SIDS to take place in Apia, Samoa in 2014 please contact UN DESA Major Groups Programme as instructed below.


Subject: 2014 UN Conference on Small Island Developing States

 

Dear colleague,


You are receiving this message because of your organization’s involvement in the work of the United Nations in the area of sustainable development and small island developing states (SIDS).


As you may be aware, the UN General Assembly has called for a third international conference on SIDS to take place in Apia, Samoa in 2014.  This message serves as a general call for your expression of interest in the preparatory process for that conference.  If the work of your organization is still relevant to specific themes of sustainable development that focus on SIDS, then we welcome your active participation in preparations for the 2014 SIDS conference.


Your main point of contact for information regarding the 2014 SIDS conference will be the Major Groups Programme of the Division for Sustainable Development—a part of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.  


We look forward to working closely with you.  Best regards,
Beppe Lovoi
Major Groups Programme
Background

The UN Conference on Sustainable Development (known as Rio+20) called for the convening of a third international conference on SIDS in 2014. [paragraph 180 of The Future We Want]

The 67th session of the General Assembly further adopted a resolution outlining modalities for holding the 2014 SIDS conference.  [A/C.2/67/L.40]  Notably, in paragraph 5, it was decided that the conference should:

a)        assess the progress to date and the remaining gaps in the implementation of international agreements;
b)        seek a renewed political commitment to effectively address the special needs and vulnerabilities of SIDS by focusing on practical and pragmatic actions;
c)        identify new and emerging challenges and opportunities for the sustainable development of SIDS and ways and means to address them including through the strengthening of collaborative partnerships between small island developing States and the international community;
d)        identify priorities for the sustainable development of SIDS for consideration in the elaboration of the post-2015 UN development agenda.
Preparatory Process

Paragraph 9 of the modality resolution articulates a regional preparatory process in each of the three SIDS regions (i. Atlantic, Indian Ocean and South China Sea—or AIMS; ii. Caribbean; and iii. Pacific).  There will also be an interregional preparatory meeting for all SIDS to identify and develop input for the 2014 conference, and to maximize coherence and complementarity with respect to other preparatory work.  The effectiveness of the preparatory process will depend greatly on national-level preparations that will feed into these regional and global meetings.

These preparatory meetings are scheduled to take place in June and July 2013.

The Role of Major Groups
Major groups are nine sectors of social, economic and technical stakeholders in sustainable development that were defined in Agenda 21.  The nine sectors are:
·        Women
·        Children and Youth
·        Indigenous Peoples
·        Non-governmental Organizations
·        Local Authorities
·        Workers and Trade Unions
·        Business and Industry
·        Scientific and Technological Community
·        Farmers
Paragraphs 17 and 21 of the modality resolution stress the need for the effective participation of relevant stakeholders, including major groups identified in Agenda 21, in the 2014 SIDS conference and its preparatory process.
Non-state actors that identify with one (or several) of the major groups sectors will participate in the 2014 SIDS conference as observers, and they will be invited to make statements on the floor, attend meetings with governments, and take part in other related side events such as workshops and trainings.
It is essential that representatives from major groups coordinate with each other well in advance to become fully conversant in the process.  The Division for Sustainable Development, through its Major Groups Programme, will lend support to those coordination efforts, relying on a focal points system to ensure that information is disseminated effectively throughout the nine sectors.
At this stage, we will begin setting up a network of participating organizations from major groups in anticipation of the three SIDS regional meetings and the interregional meeting for all SIDS this year.  
As in years past, there has been some limited funding for representatives from major groups to participate in the preparatory meetings, as well as the conference itself.  We will keep you informed of such opportunities as soon as they are made available.

[WorldYouth] Press Release: International Day of Non-Violence

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF NON-VIOLENCE

DATE:2ND OCTOBER 2014

 “Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong.”

~Mahatma Gandhi~

In recent years, there has been a remarkable increase in the number of people around the world who have taken part in nonviolent supporting action. It is clear, however, that there is considerable debate about the precise meaning of nonviolence.

Nonviolence is an undeniable force that works in the social field that brings people together, often by courageously resisting prejudice and refusing to inflict suffering.

International Day of Non-Violence is held annually to promote the ways to stop violence through education and public awareness. The 2nd of October was selected to coincide with prominent Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. This day is recognized in India as Gandhi Jayanti.

Gandhi was born in India on the 2nd of October 1869 and was assassinated on January 30, 1948. He is remembered, today, for his contributions towards India’s freedom and for sharing with the world a doctrine for dealing with injustice and dissonance. He taught people the philosophy of Ahimsa which encourages the use of non-violence as a tool for the peaceful resolution of differences. Throughout his life, Gandhi remained committed to his belief in non-violence even under oppressive conditions and in the face of seemingly impossible challenge.

The World Assembly of Youth (WAY) sturdily stands by the principle of non-violence and continues to aim for its identification and achievement in the societies. We advocate for the youth to exploit their minds as a weapon against all the injustices and promote non-violence in their communities. We, at WAY, believe that all young people are not naturally born to be ferocious.  Violence is learnt and, thus, avoidable. Proper education and productive utilisation of the leisure time are the two substantial keys in preventing the occurrence of delinquencies behaviours among young people. Thus, we would like to urge all young people to place their responsibilities above their enjoyment and prioritize their education over rebellious activities.

Let us celebrate the lasting work of the great futurist, Mahatma Gandhi and ensure that his teachings remain in our hearts with peace and harmony.

Happy International Day of Non- Violence!

[WorldYouth] Press Release: International Day of Peace 

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE: “RIGHTS OF PEOPLES TO PEACE”

DATE: 21 SEPTEMBER 2014

 

“Peace begins with a smile.”

~Mother Teresa~ 

Peace is defined as an incidence of harmony characterized by lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Frequently understood as the absence of aggression and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts of resolution. 

Understanding on the characteristics, peacefulness is always perceived as an internal sense of tranquil that comes from being still in order to reflect and meditate on the inner insight. Thus, it is said that a peaceful heart is one that is free from qualms and difficulties. 

For decades, many countries and their societies have been working and joining their efforts in the attainment of Peace for the world. Peace is not something that you could wish for; it is something you create together, something you do for other and something you share. 

In line with that, International Day of Peace is observed around the world each year on 21st of September to encourage people to work in cooperation for the achievement of World Peace. Recognized in 1981, the United Nations General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and people.  

Ever since its initiation, this day has marked individual and terrestrial progress toward peace. It has grown to include millions of people worldwide and many events are organized each year to commemorate and celebrate Peace Day. 

Marking the 30th anniversary of the General Assembly Declaration on the Right of Peoples to Peace, the theme of the 2014 International Day of Peace is on the “Right of Peoples to Peace.” This year offers an exclusive prospect to reiterate the United Nations commitment to the purposes and principles upon which the UN was founded. In particular, it emphasizes that “the right of peoples to peace demands that the policies must be directed towards the elimination of the threat of war” and recognizes that the promotion of peace is vital for the full enjoyment of human rights for all. 

We, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY), pledge to promote a culture of peace especially amongst the youth. We appreciate that every person has a right to peace and that the achievement of peace is a shared responsibility. In respect with that, WAY support and encourage young people to actively show their input on how to apply the values of patience and mutual esteem in creating the ideal peace that our world and its population need.  

Let us embrace and reflect the value of peace in our hearts and minds and gently nurture it through our actions so it may blossom as a tradition in our societies.

Happy International Day of Peace!

WorldYouth] Press Release: International Day of Democracy

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF DEMOCRACY: ‘ENGAGING YOUNG PEOPLE ON DEMOCRACY’

DATE: 15TH SEPTEMBER 2014 

“Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society’s margins, all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies”.

~Kofi Annan, Former Secretary General, Unites Nations~ 

In the world where everything is fluctuating, it is pivotal to have a proper governance concept with the balance of both fairness and equality in all forms of life; that concept is known as Democracy.  

Democracy is a worldwide value based on the freely expressed will of people to establish their own political, economic, social and cultural systems and their rights to fully contribute in all aspects of lives. 

Through democracy, the UN strives to achieve its goals of peace and just development where human rights are well protected. The UN also recognizes a fundamental truth about democracy everywhere, that democracy is the product of a strong, active and vocal civil society. 

Acknowledging the importance of Democracy, the UN General Assembly decided on November 8, 2007 to observe September 15 as the annual date in commemorating the International Day of Democracy when every stakeholder focuses on raising public awareness on Democracy.  

People between the ages of 15 and 25 years old constitute a fifth of the world’s population. In many developing countries, the proportion is even higher with the majority of them living in low and middle income countries.  

Young people have much to offer societies from innovation to creativity. Their participation in democracy promotes active citizenship, strengthens social responsibility and enhances democratic processes and institutions. What we do not want to forget is the fact that today’s young citizens are tomorrow’s leaders and decision-makers. 

This year’s theme, ‘Engaging Young People on Democracy’ is what many stakeholders including WAY seek and works for.  In achieving full participation, all stakeholders should work together in resuscitating the vivacity of young people in bringing positive contribution to their societies.  

As our contribution in observing the International Day of Democracy, we, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY), seek to participate in promoting democracy in every way possible by having a sense of responsibility, especially towards the youth, that is to protect their rights and ensure that their voices are heard. Since our establishment, we have recognized and adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in both our internal and external activities, including discussions, dialogues, and workshops with the aims of supporting and endorsing youth’s participation in the communities. 

On this day, we would like to reiterate our call to all young people to be responsibly courageous in speaking up their thought and opinion, to contribute in making betterment and positive changes for better world of tomorrow.   

World Assembly of Youth wishes you a Happy International Day of Democracy!

[WorldYout​h] Press Release: Internatio​nal Literacy Day

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL LITERACY DAY: ‘LITERACY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT’

DATE: 8 SEPTEMBER 2014 

“If you would tell me the heart of a man, tell me not what he reads, but what he re-reads.”

~François Mauriac~ 

One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person whose idea is captured literarily forever. To read is to expedition through time. Thus, it is said that a book is a gateway to betterment for a man’s life and literacy is a key of that gate.

Literacy is a human right and a tool of personal empowerment. Literacy skills, which developed from a basic to advanced level throughout life, are part of broader competencies required for critical thinking, the sense of responsibility and mostly complex matters such as participatory governance, sustainable consumption and lifestyles, ecological behaviors, biodiversity protection, poverty reduction, and disaster risk reduction.

For decades, we all know that educational opportunities depend greatly on literacy. Literacy is at the heart of Education for All (EFA), and essential for eliminating poverty, reducing child mortality, controlling population growth, achieving gender equality as well as ensuring sustainable development, peace and democracy in achieving prosperous and peaceful societies. In addition, Literacy is recognized as the key element needed to promote sustainable development, as it empowers people to make the right decisions in the areas of economic growth, social development and environmental integration.

Acknowledging all the important roles played by Literacy, especially those related to Sustainable Development, the United Nations (UN) commemorated the 8th of September annually as International Day of Literacy to raise people’s awareness of and concern for literacy issues worldwide. As for this year, the theme selected is on ‘Literacy and Sustainable Development’.

According to UNESCO, about 774 million adults lack the minimum literacy skills. One in five adults is still not literate and two-thirds of them are women. However, literacy is also a reason for celebration on the day because there are nearly four billion literate people in the world.

Together with this year’s theme, we, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY), understand the importance of literacy in attaining sustainable development. Our contribution has gone as far as hosting 14th Melaka International Youth Dialogue (14th MIYD) with a theme of “Youth and Education: Taking Action, Getting Results” which was held from 23rd to 25th June 2014 in Melaka, Malaysia. This theme was realized to fulfill the principal opinions and roles of young people towards the Post 2015 Development Agenda on education. In fact, one of the main topics discussed was on how to improve literacy rate which also includes in the six goals of Education for All (EFA).

On this special occasion of International Literacy day, we, at WAY, would like reiterate our encouragement to all young people to actively volunteer in community services or other related programmes which have a purpose in educating illiterate youth and children around us. So, let us take an oath in working together for tomorrow’s world literate society! Happy International Literacy Day!

[WorldYout​h] Press Release: Internatio​nal Day of Charity

 

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF CHARITY

DATE: 5TH SEPTEMBER 2014 

“Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go”

~ Mother Teresa~

Charity, a noble superiority in man, brings welfare to the society. It enlarges human’s heart and spreads the message of brotherhood by delivering the genuine action of love to the societies.

The word ‘charity’ means generosity in giving something to the needy out of loving kindness towards them. There is a proverb: ‘Charity begins at home,’ which simply means a person who is kind at heart and possesses compassion towards others, is generally found to give his or her helping hands to the disadvantaged in the societies.

Charity has always played a vital role in the development of society by enabling those underprivileged people to live with basic necessities of life such as shelter, food and clothing. The major way to lessen the gap amongst the different classes in the society is by sharing and distributing what are more owned by those privileged to the less privileged ones.

Many organisations have been working in this regard for a very long period of time across the globe as it has been admitted as the social responsibility of every nation to not only help the locally deprived citizens but also take encourage steps to get hold of the poor ones.

The United Nations (UN) recognized 5th of September as an International Day of Charity. It was established with the objective of sensitizing and mobilizing people, NGOs and stakeholders all around the world to help others through volunteer and benevolent activities.  This day was also chosen in honor of Mother Teresa who has dedicated her life to assisting the poor and disadvantaged people around the world. Her work was commemorated through the Nobel Prize in 1979 and until today, it continues to be carried forward with the aim of benefiting the world’s poor.

The UN encourages individuals and organizations to observe and contribute in the International Day of Charity through active involvement in volunteer work and funding campaign, holding a charity related event, sharing charitable acts on social media sites as well as rewarding good deeds in more creative ways.

We, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY), aim to hasten our efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and define a bold agenda for the period beyond 2015. In fact, we believe that the role of charity should be seen as one of the significant tools in shaping ideal traits of young people who ought to be full of compassion to humanity. In this day, we also encourage individuals especially youth and organizations worldwide to use this opportunity to encourage charitable activities in their communities.

Today, we turn to the youth and task them with the honorable duty of bringing more awareness to humanity amongst both the young and the old. Happy International Day of Charity!

[csa_event​] Carbon in dryland soils – Multiple essential functions

Subject: [csa_event] Carbon in dryland soils – Multiple essential functions

(French below)

The French Scientific Committee on Desertification (CSFD) has released the English version of its thematic issue focusing on carbon in dryland soils:

“Soil organic carbon (SOC) has a key role in the overall behaviour of soils and agroecosystems. Increasing its content enhances soil quality and fertility, thus improving agricultural resilience and sustainability and, in turn, food security of societies. Soils also contain the largest pool of carbon interacting with the atmosphere. Agricultural and forestry systems that reduce atmospheric carbon concentrations by sequestering this carbon in biomass and in soil organic matter are carbon sinks. Combating desertification contributes to soil carbon sequestration, thus mitigating global warming, while contributing to sustainable agricultural management.

Soils have only recently become a global environmental issue, especially in the framework of three international environmental conventions. These conventions have interrelated issues, especially with respect to dryland regions—desertification, climate change and biodiversity loss. Few tangible policies have, however, been drawn up concerning carbon in dryland regions. The impact of agricultural, pastoral and forestry activities on the carbon cycle need especially to be taken into greater account.

In the current carbon market system, carbon volumes of agricultural and forestry sectors are low as compared to those of other sectors (industry, etc.). Moreover, these markets do not fully recognize all activities that are conducive to carbon sequestration in agricultural soils, particularly in drylands. Carbon markets have so far been focused on checking amounts of carbon sequestered, whereas it would be much easier, and verifiable, to directly promote recognized ‘carbon sequestering’ practices. Such a market could provide much more efficient operational leverage for modifying agricultural practices and setting up systems to protect soils in dryland regions.”
The pdf version of the report is freely accessible here: http://www.csf-desertification.eu/dossier/item/carbon-in-dryland-soils-dossier

The French version (published in 2013) is still available here:http://www.csf-desertification.org/dossier/item/dossier-carbone-sols-zones-seches

Best regards,
Martial

Français:

Le Comité Scientifique Français de la Désertification vient de publier la version anglaise de son dossier thématique sur le carbonde dans les sols des zones sèches: “Le carbone organique des sols (COS) joue un rôle fondamental dans le comportement des sols et des agroécosystèmes. Augmenter sa teneur améliore la qualité et la fertilité des sols contribuant à la résilience et à la durabilité de l’agriculture et, donc, à la sécurité alimentaire des sociétés. De plus, les sols représentent le plus grand réservoir de carbone en interaction avec l’atmosphère. Les systèmes agricoles et forestiers qui réduisent les concentrations en carbone atmosphérique en le piégeant dans les biomasses et dans la matière organique du sol, sont des puits de carbone. La lutte contre la désertification permet de séquestrer du carbone dans les sols et donc d’atténuer le changement climatique, en plus de contribuer à une gestion agronomique durable.

Depuis peu, les sols sont au cœur des débats internationaux, notamment dans le cadre des trois conventions internationales sur l’environnement. Elles ont des préoccupations liées entre elles, notamment dans les régions sèches : désertification, changement climatique et perte de biodiversité. Pourtant, des politiques concrètes concernant le carbone dans ces régions peinent à se mettre en place. Il manque notamment une meilleure prise en compte de l’impact des activités agricoles, pastorales et forestières sur le cycle du carbone.

Dans l’actuel système des marchés du carbone, les secteurs agricoles et forestiers restent faibles face aux autres secteurs (industrie, etc.). De plus, ces marchés ne reconnaissent pas pleinement les activités qui favorisent la séquestration de carbone dans les sols agricoles, notamment dans les zones sèches. Les marchés se sont jusqu’à présent focalisés sur la vérification de la quantité de carbone séquestrée, alors qu’il serait beaucoup plus simple et vérifiable de promouvoir directement des pratiques reconnues comme « séquestrantes ». Un tel marché pourrait constituer un levier opérationnel beaucoup plus efficace pour modifier les pratiques agricoles et mettre en place une protection des sols des régions sèches.
La version anglaise est disponible ici: http://www.csf-desertification.eu/dossier/item/carbon-in-dryland-soils-dossier

La version française publiée en 2013 est toujours disponible: http://www.csf-desertification.org/dossier/item/dossier-carbone-sols-zones-seches

[WorldYout​h] Press Release: WAY 65TH ANNIVERSAR​Y

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH PRESS RELEASE

WAY 65TH ANNIVERSARY: “UNLOCKING YOUTH POTENTIAL”

DATE: 24TH AUGUST 2013

“With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.” – Dalai Lama

It is ineffable to imagine the power of one’s unleashed potential.  The fact that within everyone leaves a great potential to bring forward changes in others and societies’ lives gives an aim for us, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY) to unlock the potential especially those of young people. The only question remained is on how to actualize such aim.

It is once quoted that “Everybody’s got the potential for great good and great wrong in them, but it’s the choices we make that define who we really are.” (Charles de Lint). In line with that, we, at WAY, have been working hard, for over decades, in providing young people with the opportunities and platforms to make that ‘RIGHT’ choices.

Tracing back its history, founded in 1949, WAY has been known in owning a status as general consultative with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and work side-by-side with several agencies of United Nations such as UNEP, UNICEF and UNAIDS. Sixty-five years since that year, WAY currently has 120 members from all continents and acts as international coordinating body of national youth councils and organizations. Having such large network, it is now possible for WAY to realize its aim of unlocking youth potential with cooperation and support from all of its members.

As a part of that, we have underlined several relevant aims of facilitating the collection of information about both needs and problems of youth; promoting the interchange of ideas between youth from all countries; assisting in the development of youth activities; and encouraging full participation, democracy participation inclusive, of young people in their countries’ developmental process which are all useful in unlocking youth’s potential.

As our forward strategies, we have been coming out with actions which were and will be implemented  to be in line with our Millennium Plan of Actions that were specially designed to provide positive contributions through releasing the true potential of young people so that it can add value towards the advancement of societies. Sixty-five years in continuously carrying out such purposes, we, at WAY, promise to always dedicate our fullest efforts in providing platform and assisting young people to unleash their precious potential.

As in our Sixty-Fifth Birthday, we wish for the endless supports from our members, stakeholders and young people. Together we will unlock the potential of youth and make every young people effective contributors in making better life!

[WorldYout​h] Press Release: World Humanitari​an Day

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

WORLD HUMANITARIAN DAY: ‘MORE PEOPLE THAN EVER NEED HELP’

DATE: 19 AUGUST 2014

“Every State has the primary duty to protect its own population from grave and sustained violations of human rights, as well as from the consequences of humanitarian crises, whether natural or man-made.” ~Pope Benedict XVI~

Today is a day to remember the millions of people affected by war, natural disasters, sickness, and famine, and especially those who are working to relieve their suffering. Today, known as World Humanitarian Day, is a special day dedicated to Humanitarians and their noble works.

World Humanitarian Day is a day devoted to humanitarians, as well as to increase public understanding of humanitarian support activities. This day falls on the 19th August every year. On this fateful day in 2003, 22 aid workers lost their lives in a bombing at the UN headquarters in Baghdad including the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General to Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello. Since August 2009, this day is observed to honor all people who have given their lives to humanitarian service, as well as to celebrate humanitarian work around the world.

Humanitarian workers have no other agenda than saving lives and delivering the basic needs which are food, water, shelter, medical care, and protection for the most vulnerable. Interestingly, yet in many places where humanitarians are needed, today, they are often targeted. They place their own lives at risk to help others in conflict zones and areas of natural hazards. More than 700 humanitarian workers have died or experienced the most dangerous situations while trying to help those in need.

Those who are in need desperately require our help, but our ability to reach them is, sadly, increasingly challenged. Added to the complexity, each year, there are new and difficult challenges that will require more flexible funding and adaptable humanitarian work. The increasing economic crisis and global challenges such as poverty, global health problems, increase prices and the rising number of people on the move, upsurges the need for humanitarians. This condition is also reflected on this year’s theme, ’More People than Ever Need Help’

Together with this year’s theme, we, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY), confidently speak on behalf of youth in order for them to understand the human desire to live in a better world, but this will not be so without any effort. We also raise awareness on issues like gender equality, hunger and poverty and much more as gaining access to youth is our uppermost priority. It is, thus, an appropriate moment to call for a renewed commitment to humanitarian principles by all concerned.

On this World Humanitarian Day, let us once again remember the millions of people in need of help around the world, the humanitarians who have lost their lives and loved ones in the course of their work as well as the thousands of aid workers who have refused to be deterred and followed in their footsteps.

Happy World Humanitarian Day!

Subject: Assistance to prepare “Youth in Disputed Zones” roundtable 

Dear friends!

Within the framework of the forthcoming Rhodes Youth Forum 2014 Youth Time Movement together with WPF “Dialogue of Civilizations” will organize a special roundtable under the working title “Youth in Disputed Zones: How to Avoid Possible Conflicts”.

Participants from disputed regions where youth became a victim of conflicts started by their predecessors will present challenges young people face nowadays (free movement, ability to get good education and job etc.) As an option we can also consider the case of countries after the “Arab Spring” events such as Egypt and Tunisia. As a result of preliminary research the list of zones we want to study is the following:

Nagorno-Karabakh,

Kosovo,

Abkhazia and South Ossetia,

Crimea,

Palestina,

Transnistria,

Cyprus, as well as Tibet, Egypt and Tunisia

The roundtable aimed at defining hurdles youth faces living in different disputed or conflict zones today. As an additional goal is to define potential directions of youth constructive participation to change the situation for the better. We plan to issue the Resolution with the main outputs of this discussions.

Please check the list of disputed territories attached. If you know about the cituation of young people there please let me know that we need to concider some other case besides listed above.

We’ll appreciate your assistance with proposing good young speakers from these regions as well as experts who probably don’t live in these zones but recognized as reliable experts, able to conduct neutral analysis of situations in these regions. If you can propose someone please forward their CV’s.

Have a nice weekend!

Warmest regards

[WorldYout​h] Press Release: Internatio​nal Youth Day

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY: ‘MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS’

DATE: 12TH AUGUST 2014 

“The youth is the hope of our future.” ~ Jose Rizal

Youth is the time of life when one is young, but often means the time between childhood and adulthood (maturity). The specific age range that constitutes youth varies from one region to another.

International Youth Day (IYD) is an awareness day selected by the United Nations and observed worldwide on 12th August every year. The purpose of this day is to draw attention to a given set of cultural and legal issues surrounding youth. Youth day is one of the many extensive efforts of the United Nations to help member states reach out to their youth and understand all challenges faced by them. Besides, it aims to promote ways to actively engage youth in making positive contributions to their communities.

IYD is also an annual celebration of the role of young people as the essential partners in change.  Along with ensuring their rights, an equally important goal of IYD is to shape the youth not just as a passive beneficiary of development efforts, but as a force for positive social change.

As for today, IYD focuses on the rights of young people to have full access to education, adequate healthcare, employment opportunities, financial services and full participation in public life. In a climate of economic uncertainty, it is important for countries to invest in opportunities for their youth to learn, earn and grow so that the common future lies in good hands. During IYD, concerts, workshops, cultural events, and meetings involving national and local government officials as well as youth organizations take place around the world.

The theme of International Youth Day 2014 is ‘Mental Health Matters’ in which special focus will be given on the stigma and discrimination attached to the theme. Youth with mental health conditions often experience stigma and discrimination which can lead to exclusion and discourage them from seeking help due to the fear of being negatively ‘labeled’. Efforts are needed to overcome this stigma to ensure that young people with mental health conditions are able to enjoy full and healthy lives free of isolation.

Together with this year’s theme, we at World Assembly of youth encourage both Member States and the general public to understand the needs of young people, to implement policies to help them overcome the challenges they face, as well as to support young people and their contribution in the decision-making process. We also bring youth issues to the attention of the international community and realize the potential of youth as partners of betterment in today’s global society. Recognizing Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we believe in an equal opportunity to be given to all young people regardless their limitation. Thus, in line with this year’s International Youth Day, we would like to urge all stakeholders to work from grassroots level in calling to the end all kind of discrimination and stigma addressed to young people with mental health conditions.

Happy International Youth Day!

Action/201​5 Campaign Global Movement

 action2015 Overview (1)

Dear Youth Leaders, 

In 2015 two inter-governmental processes (on climate change and the post-2015 sustainable development agenda) provide a powerful opportunity for collective
and decentralised large-scale, public-facing actions aimed at compelling
governments at all levels to commit to ambitious and transformative action to end
poverty, address inequality and ensure sustainable development. In response, a
number of civil society activists came together in Istanbul (February 2014) and
Johannesburg (April 2014) to discuss how we could make the most of this
momentous opportunity. What follows describes the plans for a major new
initiative – called Action/2015 – that we hope will help us build a global
movement for change.

Sequel to the above, we invite you to join the Action/2015 Global Movement. This movement will focus on the moment of September 2015 including maximizing the global activation of the campaign at this climactic moment for the campaign.

Please visit the campaign website action2015 website and register your organization as a member of the campaign. We currently have over 170 organizations from all parts of the world.

If you have further questions or clarifications – please contact  info@action2015.org

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF FRIENDSHIP

DATE: 30TH JULY 2014 

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” ~ Albert Camus~ 

Friendship is the greatest possession of life. It is a relationship of mutual affection between two or more people and a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association. It is then unquestionable that one of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.

Although there are many forms of friendship, certain characteristics are always present and shared. Such characteristics include affection, sympathy, empathy, honesty, altruism, mutual understanding, compassion, trust, the ability to be oneself, express one’s feelings, and make mistakes without fear of judgment from the friend. While there is no practical limit on what types of people can form a friendship, friends tend to share common backgrounds, occupations, or interests, and have similar demographics.

The International Day of Friendship is a United Nations (UN) day that promotes the role that friendship plays in promoting peace in many cultures all around the world. It is observed on the 30th of July each year. The day is based on the recognition of friendship not only in the general sense but also both its relevance and importance as a valuable sentiment in the lives of human beings around the world.

The International Day of Friendship has been celebrated in several South American countries for many years, particularly in Paraguay, where the first World Friendship Day was proposed, back in 1958. In 2011, the UN proclaimed the International Day of Friendship with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, and cultures can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities. In this day, the UN urges young people to contribute in community activities that include different cultures and promote international understanding and respect for diversity.

As the contribution of World Assembly of Youth (WAY) in observing the International Day of Friendship, we encourage stakeholders, governments, organizations, and community groups to hold events, activities and initiatives that promote unity, mutual understanding and reconciliation, like our annual Melaka International Youth Dialogue (MIYD) where all participants who are mostly consisted of young leaders from different background, occupations and culture, share one common interest of attaining the better life for young people worldwide. Every year, new friendships are born during our dialogue while our young participants work together in the achievement of youth betterment. This year 14th MIYD has also engendered many sparks of beautiful friendships amongst both participants and volunteers.

Therefore, on this year International Day of Friendship, we would like to reiterate our calls to young people to contribute in cultivating warm ties that strengthen our common humanity and promote the well-being of the human family.

Happy International Day of Friendship!

[WorldYout​h] Press Release: Internatio​nal Day of the World’s Indigenous People

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE WORLD’S INDIGENOUS PEOPLE: ‘BRIDGING THE GAP: IMPLEMENTING THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES’

DATE: 9 AUGUST 2014 

I support the indigenous people anywhere in the planet ~Edward James Olmos

Indigenous People are a significant and important portion of humanity. Their heritage, their ways of life, their stewardship of this planet, and their cosmological insights are an invaluable treasure for society. Indigenous live in every region of the world and in all varieties of climates ranging from Arctic cold to Amazon heat. They often claim a deep connection to their lands and natural environments. Thus, many indigenous people value the natural world as a source of food, health, spirituality and identity.

The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is commemorated  annually on 9th of August to promote, protect and endorse the rights enshrined in the United Nations Declaration particularly on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP). This day also presents an opportunity to honour diverse indigenous cultures and recognize the achievements and valuable contributions of an estimated 370 million indigenous people all around the world.

This year’s theme which is on ‘Bridging the Gap: Implementing the Rights of Indigenous Peoples’ aims to highlight the importance of implementing the rights of indigenous people through policies and programmes at both the national and international level by working together with Governments, the United Nations and other stakeholders with the aim of bridging the gap between indigenous people and our society.

As a contribution from World Assembly of Youth (WAY) in observing the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, we work to support national governance systems to be more effective in addressing discrimination and structural inequalities that can disproportionately affect indigenous peoples. We, at WAY, believe that by guaranteeing access to opportunities and supporting as well as enabling environment where indigenous peoples are empowered, they shall be able to develop their full potential to lead dignified lives in harmony with their world vision and traditional values.WAY always insists on making indigenous youth a priority by having all necessary recommendations flowing from the permanent forum to promote better integration and coordination of their issues, including youth issues, across the globe.

Today, as the world is celebrating International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, WAY will continue to support robust engagement and collaboration and further build alliances between different partners to put the end to exclusion and discrimination as well as to enable indigenous people to exercise their full rights in free and diverse societies.

Happy International Day of the World’s Indigenous People!

[WorldYout​h] Press Release: World Population Day

WORLD ASSEMBLY OF YOUTH

PRESS RELEASE

WORLD POPULATION DAY

 DATE: 11TH JULY 2014 

“A finite world can support only a finite population; therefore, population growth must eventually equal zero”.~ Garrett Hardin~ 

Population is still technically growing and according to the United Nation Population Division’s numbers, that growth is slowing dramatically. World population day is a global awareness operation that is celebrated all over the world by bringing a population revolution internationally and seeking to raise understanding of global population issues.

In 1968, world leaders proclaimed that individuals had a basic human right to determine freely and responsibly the number and timing of their children. Since that day, 11th July is continued to be observed to reiterate the significance of human right to plan for a family by encouraging activities and disseminating the right information to help make this right veracity.

However, realization of the right to plan a family encounters many challenges including the fact that many modern contraception remains out of reach for millions of women, men and young people. Regardless, the growth of population will continue to increase despite the dramatic declines in the average number of children per woman.

Acknowledging on the threats possessed by the world population growth, the UN authorized this day as a vehicle to build an awareness of population issues and the impact they have on development as well as the environment. Each year a theme is selected to highlight a priority area of concern pertaining to population issues.

We, at World Assembly of Youth (WAY), are fully aware that over population growth is occurring all over the world but the growth often multiplies mostly in less developed countries. We believe that as more and more individuals share our planet, new challenges arise daily. Thus, it rests on individual decisions and actions to control global population growth particularly those from young people considering them as the largest portion of world population. Therefore, taking into account the urgency to solve the current population challenges, we urge young people to educate others including their peers especially those living in less developed countries on effective family planning, sex education amongst adolescents and the importance of using contraceptive.

Thus, at this point, we cannot know with certainty when or if world population can feasibly be stabilized, nor can we state with assurance the limits of the world’s ecological “carrying capability”, but we can be certain of the desirable direction of change that we seek which is to ensure reproductive health through the channel of education.

Happy World Population Day!

40% Goan youth watch rape porn, finds survey 

PANAJI: Some 40% of the youngsters in Goa watch ‘rape porn’ regularly, Mysore-based organization Rescue said, based on a sample survey it conducted covering 200 undergraduate male students in Goa across 10 colleges. 

Rescue CEO Abishek Clifford said they have asked state administrators to install software that blocks pornographic sites before distributing the laptops and tablets that the Goa government provides to students. 

Clifford said that according to their survey 76% of the surveyed students said that watching pornography involving rape led to the desire to rape in them. He said that another 47% of these students ended up watching child porn. 

“All of the students were already watching porn, 50% of them were now watching violent porn. Watching pornography is a progressive addiction. When it no longer satisfies you, you turn to violent porn or child porn,” he said. 

He recommended a software K9 that he said allows porn sites to be blocked completely. 

“One high school in Goa reported to have caught their female students with a pen drive that contained violent porn, which the school head was shocked to see in the possession of children,” Clifford said. Rescue’s survey claims that students end up watching 28 videos of rape each week. 

Drawing a link between watching rape porn and rape reported in real life, Clifford said, “The incidents of rape are increasing due to saturation of violent internet porn. Everyone is shocked at the level of violence in rape, now we know why. Violent porn advertises rape and half of the porn sites have it.” 

The students surveyed were between the ages of 18 to 22, he said. (Times of India)

To all youth passionate about climate change and health,

As young people, we often feel that there is a large disconnect between our visions, our projects our voices and the international political talks on climate change and health. We would like to change that. The international federation of medical students association (IFMSA) would like to facilitate a discussion with youth and the international climate community.

Youth everywhere have taken action to lead our societies towards a low carbon and climate resilient future. They are spreading awareness, adopting climate-friendly lifestyles, advocating for governmental action, and implementing adaptation and mitigation projects in their communities. We want to gain your opinions in order to create a Youth Voices document that will be added to the official report at the WHO climate change and health conference.

This is your chance to tell decision-makers what your innovative ideas are for a healthy and sustainable future.

REGISTER NOW for this webinar which will be happening on Thursday July 24 at 4:00 pm CEST to start a discussion on climate change in health: https://who-meeting.webex.com/who-meeting/onstage/g.php?t=a&d=844555604

If you cannot make it, or would like to participate in the youth voices campaign, join our facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/youth2who/ and tweet us using the hashtag #youth2who

Help us put health on the climate change agenda
