UN forum stresses potential of youth as force for progress

Youth employment

This generation of youth is the largest in history and it is also the focus of the 45th session of the Commission on Population and Development.

The Secretary-General says the world's young people have their eyes wide open. They are informed as never before. They are connected to one another. And they care.

That is why Ban Ki-moon says more needs to be done to give them education, health and job opportunities for the future.
