One Young World Dublin 2014

“What way for the next generation? What future for our children? What is Climate Justice? What is the role and place of youth in this?

To reflect on these issues and find answers to these questions, young people from diverse backgrounds so that they can bring together to build a better future that nearly 1,300 young people from 193 countries as well as eminent personalities from the business world of the civil societies foundations of multinational and international organizations such as the United Nations, have agreed to meet in Dublin, the Irish capital from 15 to 18 October 2014 for the fifth One Young World Summit (One Young World Dublin 2014).

Began with an opening ceremony where the flag bearers all participating nations marched with the national colors. This meeting revolved around issues such as Sustainable Development, Global Business, Leadership and Governance, Human Rights, Peace and Conflict and Education have well discussed all poignant topics ranging from poverty to climate change through the education and many others.

Another great opportunity for the participants to this conference is networking, bringing together organizations, business and foundation to move from rhetoric to concrete action to create the change they crave most often and their remaining first. If concern high technology and social networks have an important role in the development process and communication between peoples, there is no doubt less than the direct actions are the most remarkable and most efficient in the country less developed and necessarily consolidated, and we can post a message of peace on social networks but can not give peace through them. The culture of peace requires action rather awareness to the individual and collective state to result in a culture of tolerance, forgiveness maintained by the ongoing dialogue.

IDEAS for Us were well represented at this global meeting represented by its Director of Togo (Kwami TSEDZE Mensa) in the colors of the Togolese Republic. This meeting was an opportunity for Mensa to show that IDEAS shares the same vision for Togo and the world, it was also an opportunity to meet with several other organizations that share the same vision and the same goals and therefore called upon to act together possible.

And if men are equal in dignity and rights, socio-economic and geopolitical contexts their not give the same chance to also gain access to information and opportunities to impact with the same energy and the same results. 89 million tones of food is wasted in Europe in 2013 and this may increase to 120 million tones by 2020 if nothing is done. Innocent people worldwide are now victims of the lives of others through the adverse effects of climate change and it must call all of us to awareness and to act accordingly.
