Power of Youth for Well – Being and Sustainable Development
Power of youth is the power of the new generation to create sustainable development needed for a better world. Amongst contradictions and fierce competition in the global community, some nations have attempted to thrive by overcoming others using force, warfare or indirect aggression through their economic policies. Individually nations are locally responsible for the spoiling and destruction of their earth’s natural resources including forests, air, water and marine resources. Resultantly these actions are creating an increasing pressure on humanity in its ability to live sustainably and cohesively on this planet and could possibly trigger an unprecedented worldwide political crisis.
Student development aims at leading the world away from a looming crisis by decreasing the existing contradictions and problems while sustainably preserving natural resources for the well – being of all the world’s citizens. The decisive objective for this conference is to support and train a new generation of students for developing refreshing ideas and to engage with energetic enthusiasm in brainstorming solutions for community and environmental development while preserving the world’s natural resources.
Higher Educational Institutions have important roles in designing suitable curriculums and providing quality teaching while fostering student activities that cultivate graduates to embody a strong conscience in world affairs, environmental preservation and a strong desire to live harmoniously in the world. As graduates have a potential to lead the development of the world into a sustainable and peaceful habitation, educational intuitions have an ideal opportunity to strategically shape the world’s future harmoniously through its graduates.
