by Marion on September 13th, 2010

A 32 page document that outlines a Resolution adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on March 13, 1996. If you are looking for some nice information to strengthen a presentation or proposal you are preparing, consider the following…. – The United Nations considers youth to be ages 15 to 24 – 10 priority areas were identified in 1996, with Leisure-time activities being one of those ten – Members of the United Nations are working to see ‘young people…. aspire to full participation in the life of society…. including participation in decision-making process; …. places and facilities for cultural, recreation and sports activities to improve the living standards of young people in both rural and urban areas – Under the educational priority, one of the proposals for action is an infrastructure for training youth workers and youth leaders – Under the employment area, one of the proposals is to provide voluntary community services involving youth and, where none exist, to have youth organizations involved in the designing, planning, implementing and evaluating of the programs – Under the hunger and poverty area, one of the proposals is to make farming more rewarding and life in agricultural areas more attractive – Under the drug abuse area, one of the proposals for action is to give priority to preventative measures….rural areas should be provided with adequate social-economic opportunities and administrative services which could discourage young people from migrating to urban areas….youth from poor urban settings should have access to specific education, employment and leisure programs, particularly during long school holidays – Under Leisure-time activities, there are four separate proposals for action. These are located on pages 23 and 24 of the document.
