International Youth Day offers us a chance to remember what the Youth has done for the world in the past, in the present, and what it can do in the future. The theme of the 2016 International Youth Day is eradicating poverty and achieving sustainable consumption and production. I know, I know, it's a tough one, but let's be real, no one is as innovative as we are, so we better start brainstorming. It is our future, after all.
And plus, people trust us. Here's a Justin Trudeau quote I'm sure will inspire you!
“Canadian youth have innovative ideas and new perspectives on how we should address the opportunities and challenges of our day. That is why we established the Prime Minister’s Youth Council to ensure we hear, at the highest level of government, what young people have to say. Youth issues are everyone’s issues, and youth should have a voice in decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives.
“On this day, and every day, I encourage young people to initiate and lead the change we seek and need now. Be the leaders of today. There is no reason to wait until tomorrow.
“On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I wish all those marking the occasion a happy and inspiring International Youth Day.”
Let's do it.
