Supporting Youth Civic Engagement in Bangladesh

In this landmark year, as leaders prepare to adopt a bold new vision for sustainable development, the engagement of youth is more valuable than ever. At this critical moment in history, I call on young people to demand and foster the dramatic progress so urgently needed in our world.

– UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

“Youth Civic Engagement” is the theme of the 16th annual International Youth Day on August 12. In Bangladesh, where young people make up two-thirds of the total population, and roughly half of young graduates are unemployed, The Asia Foundation is working to involve young people in their nation’s development.
