Youth delegates meet in Mexico to discuss next stages in the Youth Employment Summit campaign
Vera Cruz, Mexico
06 October 2004
At the youth Employment Summit meeting today, Ismail Serageldin moderated an open discussion with about 200 persons in the room, including over ten ministers from various countries. In the process he helped develop a consensus over the next stage of the campaign to create 500 million sustainable livelihoods for youth in a decade. He also got unanimous agreement on launching an international best practices award for the civil society to be nominated by the youth-led YES country networks. This came on top of the preceding days discussion in plenary where he had galvanized the plenary audience in concluding the panel discussion with a rousing call to arms that resonated well with the 1,000 participants in the audience, who had come to Mexico from over 100 countries.
