International Youth Day 2022: Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages

To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world needs to leverage the full potential of all generations. Solidarity across generations is key for sustainable development. We must collaborate to foster successful and equitable intergenerational relations and partnerships to ensure “no one is left behind.” While intergenerational solidarity and concern for future generations is being called for in tackling global issues – with the UN Secretary-General recently putting forward new recommendations on renewed intergenerational solidarity, including in Our Common Agenda – many challenges remain. 

Creating a World for All Agesis to amplify the message that action is needed across all generations to achieve the SDGs and leave no one behind. The 2022 International Youth Day will also raise awareness on certain barriers to intergenerational solidarity, notably ageism, which impacts young and old persons, while having detrimental effects on society as a whole.

AAYFO has given opportunity to youths from across the two continents to innovatively and creatively unleash their potential. Through AAYFO, I believe the youths can be empowered with skills that will enable them to become more independent, as such; this will lead to sustainable development.

Through AAYFO Indonesia, I realize that youth have big roles to realize sustainable development, to carry out a mission of peace by upholding the values of equality, as well as to strengthen the cooperative relationships of youth between nations.

Diversity is said to be one of the leading causes of human conflict but AAYFO has shown me that only when diversity is respected and embraced, we can reach the desire unity which generates the very power driving this youth community forward. I believe to make sustainable development within human’s reach, it requires us to foster youth empowerment and give them the chance to show the world how their inclusive power works to help us achieve sustainability. Therefore, the role of youth organization like AAYFO has become even more significant than ever before.
