Delegate: Ms. Yim Pu-Reum
2. Ms. Yim Pu-Reum (Republic of Korea), speaking as youth delegate, said that one way to measure success in dealing with the problems affecting children would be the degree to which young people were involved in the development and implementation of national plans of action at all levels.
3. Youth were able to use modern technologies and social media to ensure that children were better protected and educated. Immediate action was required to involve youth leadership in the efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and to harness the younger generation’s free exchange of ideas, constructive criticism, creativity and energy. Lastly, additional financial resources were needed at the national and the international levels.
