Investing in our youth is a prerequisite for a peaceful, progressive and sustainable future

Here’s a question that keeps me awake some nights - what will we do with advances in business, economy and technology if we do not pay attention to harnessing the capabilities of young people who will at some point be responsible for the successful functioning of their communities and the world? Are we doing enough to safeguard their basic rights to education, food, shelter, and other basic amenities? Are we making our best efforts to give them a real voice?
