In line with the theme of International Youth Day 2017 (IYD) which is “Youth Building Peace”, we take out time this weekend on your favourite character building show, Rivethics to speak on strategies for building among the youth.
Since the adoption of Security Council Resolution 2250 in 2015, there is growing recognition that as agents of change, young people are critical actors in conflict prevention and sustaining peace. The International Youth Day 2017 is dedicated to celebrating young people’s contributions to conflict prevention and transformation as well as inclusion, social justice, and sustainable peace.
The current generation of youth are the largest in history and young people often comprise the majority in countries marked by armed conflict or unrest, therefore considering the needs and aspirations of youth in matters of peace and security is a demographic imperative.
On RivEthics today, Esther Nweje, a young and accomplished entrepreneur and image consultant shares on how young people can effectively become peace and nation builders. You’d find this episode inspiring.
