Youth, Jinnah Awards on 12th

ISLAMABAD, Aug 8 The Ministry of Youth Affairs will hold National Youth and Jinnah Awards distribution ceremony on August 12 to commemorate "International youth day".

The awards will be distributed among the best selected young talent to recognise their achievements in the development of the country.

Minister for Women Development and Youth Affairs, Sumaira Malik will be the chief guest in the ceremony.

"A major focus of Youth Day this year will be to ensure the youth empowerment and participation in the processes and decisions that affect their lives," an official of Ministry told this agency.

The problems of young men and women, as well as their vision and aspirations, are an essential element of the challenges facing today's societies and future generations.

In all parts of the world, young people, living in countries at different stages of development and in different socio-economic situations, aspire to live full lives in their societies.

The Youth Day has greater significance for young people because the day is celebrated to ensure them the provision of quality education, employment opportunities, adequate food and nutrition, participation in decision- making processes, and access to cultural, recreational and sports activities.

The UN General Assembly on December 17, 1999 in its resolution 54/120, endorsed the recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth, regarding celebration of the 12th August as International Youth Day.

The Assembly recommended that public information activities be organised to support the Day as a way to promote better awareness of the World Programme of Action for Youth to the Year 2000 and Beyond, adopted by the General Assembly in 1995.

Since the International Youth Year, the world has experienced fundamental political, economic and socio- cultural changes. Young people represent agents, beneficiaries and victims of such changes which will inevitably affect us into the next century. App
