Cuban Youth a Main Player in Social Change
Havana, Cuba, Aug 11.- Researchers of the Center for Youth Studies of Cuba said today that the youngsters are set to be main players in the country's social changes.
They must be involved in those transformations in a critical, conscious way, said experts of the institution in an on-line forum of Juventud Rebelde newspaper about youth rights.
Specialists Adriana Elias, Maylin Perez and Lisette Abadie said that people under 30 have great challenges ahead marked by ongoing changes, referring to the over 300 guidelines approved in 2011 in the 6th Congress of the COMMUNIST Party of Cuba.
These changes have to do with labor market insertion and continuity of studies, besides an adequate professional training, they noted.
Young people are set to assume a responsible attitude in social life, noted the experts, who took part in the on-line forum on occasion of UN-proclaimed World Youth Day to be marked on Sunday, Aug. 12.
Issues discussed in the over tree-hour on-line forum included access to free, quality education and health care, employment, freedom of speech, recreation, family and sexual and reproductive rights. (Prensa Latina).
