4. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations:
“The youth is facing enormous challenges. Youth unemployment as I said in the beginning, is probably the biggest threat to our societies, but the youth has a much bigger capacity than the older generations to understand the digital world and to use different tools, from social media to all the other tools of the digital world, which means we are much better prepared to face the challenge of modernity.”

“It is much better to prevent than to respond. When we prevent conflicts, when we prevent disease, when we prevent economic problems, when we prevent terrorism, we are not only avoiding the suffering of people, we are also doing it in a cheaper with less negative impact on the life of the community and in the business of the community.”

STORYLINE
UN chief António Guterres today visited the Jiongoze Project in the Kamakunju area of Nairobi, which aims at reducing vulnerability to radicalization and violent extremism among the youth.

During his visit to the project, the Secretary-General met young people who were part of a project which aims to help local youth develop technology skills and find online employment.

During a townhall meeting at the same site, Guterres listened to community representatives explain a number of projects aimed to combat violent extremism and terrorism in a neighbourhood of Nairobi that has suffered from a number of terrorist attacks in recent years.

What makes life interesting is the possibility to share, to contact, to bring together different religions, different cultures and different ways of looking at society, but working together for the common good.”

After hearing from the community representatives, Guterres said that he was impressed by the comprehensive approach taken by the community and that they were looking at all aspects of the threats that they face.

He also told them that he found some of their projects particularly innovative. The lesson, he said, was that they all understood that it was better to prevent than to respond.
