Reflections from UNESCO Youth Forum

by Damla Aktan on 28th October, 2011 at 3:47 AM CEST

I always tell: “Inequalities are the roots of the world, but yet they are the roots of the change”. All the young faces coming in front of our desk were leaving with a big smile inside their eyes with the signs of hope. And hope…Yes it is the only thing that initiates a change for a young person.

As Mrs. Irına Bokova, the General Director of UNESCO expressed in her speech in the evening reception full of lovely young people all around: “The Forum was a house of culture, tolerance and dialogue. We are thought to encourage education, to encourage dialogue, to preserve the heritage, nature and biodiversity.Looking at you, I am becoming very optimistic. As I said today, the wonderful way of these people is that you have dreams, you have ambitions, you are curious, you can move on. Pursue your dreams and your ambitions. I think this is the best we can receive from you”. Yes, dreams are the only transformators in life.

As Maria Robinson said: “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” So C:F youth, I am a hundred percent sure that you have dreams!Follow them, and help us to be the change we want to see in a more peaceful world!
