G.Brezoiu: "There is no democracy without involving youth"

Championed by CoD YouthLeads, and presented at the Community of Democracies Youth Forum on July 23, 2020, the Youth Forum Statement calls on governments to adhere to democratic values and fundamental rights and highlights the importance of cooperation with youth in all spheres of public life and their inclusion in democratic decision-making processes.

The Youth Statement was introduced during the CoD Youth Forum. The event is organized as part of celebrations of the 20th Anniversary of the Community of Democracies (CoD) to highlight the importance of youth inclusion as a key element of strong sustainable democracies. Youth empowerment is a priority of the Presidency of the Community of Democracies, Romania, who holds the mandate for 2019-2021, and a cross-cutting theme mainstreamed into all CoD activities.

Mr Gabriel Brezoiu, General Manager of GEYC signed the Youth Statement today on behalf of the GEYC Community.
