Delegate: Mr. Nicolas Penseyres
7. Mr. Penseyres (Switzerland), speaking as a youth delegate, said that unemployment, poverty, lack of education and limited prospects made young people susceptible to hate propaganda. To ensure that they could find employment, Switzerland emphasized quality education and on-the-job training. To encourage social inclusion and instil core values and responsibility, it supported extracurricular activities and youth organizations. A solid value system was the best protection against indoctrination. Promoting values such as democracy, civic duty and solidarity among the young should be an international priority.
