Delegate: Mr. Andraž Šiler
30. Mr. Šiler (Slovenia), speaking as a youth delegate, said that Sustainable Development Goal 8 on decent work and economic growth was of particular significance for young people. Unemployment was only part of the problem. In Slovenia and Europe in general, most young people who were employed held part-time or precarious jobs. Historically, young people had proven to be able agents of change. They wanted and deserved an opportunity to show their skills, knowledge, talent and wisdom.
