You and I Youth Academy is a global solution to Youth development. Youth Development can be achieved even in low-income countries by providing quality education and training and allowing young people to participate in the nation’s political, economic and social life. Health and well-being are also factors that weigh heavily in youth development. Besides encouraging a healthy lifestyle, sports and physical activities also promote teamwork, responsibility and intercultural learning all providing sound bases for young people’s roles in the future. The healthier and more skilled our youth are, and the more they play a role in our societies, the more opportunities and freedom they will have to fulfill their aspirations and talents, and more likely it becomes that we will succeed in achieving the SDGs by 2030.
The Youth Academy is anchored in the belief that young people are;
- A force for peace, democracy, equality, and good governance.
- A catalyst for global consensus-building.
- An essential resource for sustainable development and poverty eradication.
