International Youth Day 2012

 

To celebrate the International Youth Day 2012, a student debate was organized by the UN Interagency Working Group on Youth on 8 August 2012 at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, Thailand. Eight teams consisting of Thai college students and UN interns discussed on topics such as: "The world has a common future, and youth should choose it", "The rich will always dominate the poor" and "The Rio+20 statement will make the world better". The debates were chaired by Darryl Macer, Regional Advisor for Social and Human Sciences in Asia and the Pacific, UNESCO Bangkok.
