Chisinau, 13 November /MOLDPRES/ - More cultural actions dedicated to the National Youth Day, marked today, are held in Chisinau and other settlements of Moldova.  

„On the second Sunday of November, we celebrate the National Youth Day in Moldova. You, the present pupils and students, young professionals, have the necessary force, knowledge, positive energy to edify a democratic state, where the law has the precedence and peace reigns and which embraces the generally human values and aspires to be member of the great European family,’’ reads a congratulatory message signed by the competent minister Anatolie Topala.    

According to the official, the youth field is an inter-sectoral one and young people’s participation in all spheres of life is crucial for a society based on such values as democracy, tolerance and prosperity. ‘’I am fully confident in you and I appreciate a lot your creative potential and the direct involvement in the promotion of the national, generally human and democratic values. I see Moldova’s future with you, employed here at home, in education, research, social sphere, production sector, agriculture, industry, public service. The country needs you. The country represents you,’’ Education and Research Minister Anatolie Topala stressed.    

The presence of young people is ever more obvious in the public space of Moldova. The youth structures from the country play an active role: Youth Centres, Local Youth Councils, youth employees, youth specialists from the local public administration authorities, which contribute to the creation of a proper environment for the assertion of the personal and professional life of each young person, including for the fairs support of those from the groups with poor possibilities.   

Presently, there are more than 1.8 billion young people with ages between 10 and 24 years in the world. According to the United Nations, this is the largest population of young people of all times. Nevertheless, more than a half of the children and teenagers with ages between 6 and 14 years have no basic knowledge as to the reading and mathematics, despite the fact that most of them are schooled. This global crisis of assimilating knowledge strongly hinders the carrying out of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda was adopted by the United Nations Organization in 2015 and establishes a global framework for reducing poverty and achieving sustainable development till 2030, based on the Millennium Development Goals.
