Hungary – 2017

Delegate: Ms. Zsófia Rácz

98. Ms. Rocz (Hungary), speaking as a youth delegate, said that she had travelled around Hungary to promote the Sustainable Development Goals among young people, who had many innovative ideas for solving the problems in their local environment, offering sustainable solutions that could be passed on to future generations. Experts working on youth [*14*] policies should consult young people, who could be an enormous asset to their society if included in decision making and implementation processes. Seeing the tangible results of their work would make young people even more motivated and dedicated.

99. During her tour of Hungary, a survey had been conducted to see which of the Sustainable Development Goals were the most important for young people. The results had shown that, in addition to Goal 8 on decent work and economic growth and Goal 10 on reduced inequalities, the most important goal was Goal 4 on quality education an education that offered both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Achieving Goal 4 was a prerequisite for achieving the other 16 Goals. Every young person should be provided with a secure and peaceful environment for a happy and healthy life the future could be built by building peace.
