36. Ms. Reindi (Germany), speaking as a youth delegate, said that in the course of her travels throughout her country, she had discovered that the environment, discrimination, and lack of participation in decision-making were among the issues that were of most concern to German youth. She called for greater involvement of youth in the political process; equality for all regardless of nationality, race, religion or sexual orientation; and greater attention to sustainable consumption and renewable energy.
37. Mr. Rohde (Germany), speaking as a youth delegate, said that a strong and reliable international framework to address the problems brought about by globalization was needed. Only a small number of Member States of the United Nations had implemented the World Programme of Action on Youth. Young people were eager to be involved in the creation of a better future; all they needed were more channels of participation.
