Guide and motivate youth
Shanjida Khan Shorna (25) has been working with the EYW work programme, as well as the National Youth Advisory Board in Bangladesh (which advocates with decision makers at both local and national level) for quite some time. We met her during the Influencing Workshop in Thailand, that took place from the 17th until the 19th of April. The idea behind the event was to gather youth, country teams, and partners. To facilitate an environment for learning regarding topics such as cultural traditions, environmental conditions, and population demographics.
‘I always believed the huge number of youth in most of the countries and also in Bangladesh, they are a demographic bomb. So, if you can guide and motivate…they will never disappoint.’
