International Youth Day Message by the Minister for Youth, Hon. Bernie Bush
On behalf of the Ministry of Youth, Sports, Culture & Heritage and the entire Government, I take this opportunity to wish our young people a Happy International Youth Day.
International Youth Day celebrated on the 12th August is a day to recognise the importance of our young people and raise awareness that they hold the key to our future.
This year’s theme of “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages” can be simplified into three words: “dialogue between generations”.
Intergenerational solidarity is at the heart of all events organised by my Ministry and its agencies. Our policies and programmes affect our youth, so our progress as a nation cannot be achieved without decision-making across all ages.
Let us always remember that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders, and I encourage our young people to let their voices be heard on matters that affect them.
Again, Happy International Youth Day! I invite you to join me, my Ministry Team, and the Government as we work to empower and strengthen our young people and the future of our beautiful Cayman Islands.
Thank you and God bless.
