WHY THE YOUTH TALKS

I want you to imagine a generation that has been damned, imagine children deprived of a world without war, imagine a community where human beings are slaves to fellow beings and where disease and hunger are the order of the day. That is the future we warned you of in 92 and that future, is today.  (An excerpt of closing speech given by the youth representatives in Rio+20 sustainability conference.)

What could be better if the future we want today would be a better, sustainable future as we all agree to carry it out?

Rather than looking upon self-interests and net business profits, everyone: youth and adult, the rich and the poor should pursue to attain a sustainable future as being part of the one and only planet. Decision-making and implementation could be better if everyone notices inter-generational cooperation, innovation, and decides to work on equity of rights and environment since everyone has come so far in Rio +20 to make a commitment. So, why not act now as the youth has already mentioned that material resources are finite but human potential is not?

What a sustainable future needs is everyone’s cooperation but not the drafts of papers to show commitment. So, please take action now and this is why the Youth talks.
