Member of Parliament for Hambantota District

As a young parliamentarian, I have always believed and advocated for young people to be given their due place in policy formulation and implementation. Young people are not the leaders of tomorrow, but today. We have the dream to see positive change in our societies, and the ability to drive forward to attain our dreams.

Thus, it is with great anticipation that we look forward to the World Conference on Youth 2014. This will indeed be the platform for young people to come together, raise their voice, and to reach a consensual decision with policy makers on how we the young people should be mainstreamed into decision making.

 

It is with great happiness that we the young people of Hambanthota await your arrival in our city for the Opening Ceremony of the WCY 2014. As the host city for the Commonwealth Youth Forum, and declared as a ‘Youth City’, Hambanthota will be an ideal place to start this journey from.

 

This is our time. Let us rise up to it.
