MY PARTICIPATION AND REPRESENTATION AS U.A.E. YOUTH IN E-DEBATES CONTRIBUTED TO MR. BAN KI MOON?S ANNOUNCEMENT TO APPOINT A NEW SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE FOR YOUTH TO ENGAGE YOUNG PEOPLE AND SPEARHEAD UNITED NATIONS? EFFORTS

I, participated in the e-debate with key questions as below?

Youth should be better engaged in the UN system? If yes, how will the UN system benefit from youth's engagement?

I understand and believe that there has been a considerable increase in youth participation at social and environment level in the year 2011.  More so because a great number of organizations have stepped forward and youth is getting more strongly connected with efforts of many youth groups who are engaging each other in positive thought building process.  Yes there is need for the responsible states also to address and believe in the power of the youth and give them more chances.  I feel youth is the only HOPE OF OUR FUTURE and if youth are part of the decision making process they will shoulder the responsibility and be prepared for the consequences if the promises they make are not delivered.

There have been more youth conferences in 2011 and 2012 than ever before, especially because of Rio +20 being round the corner and YOUTH from all around the world is UNITED and one in the thought that there must be accountability, responsibility, facility and deliverance, and there must be no LET GO
