Reem Al Sowaidi, Manager of the Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), said: “International Youth Day is an important calendar date to raise awareness that the engagement and participation of youth is essential to achieve sustainable development. So often the opportunities for young people to engage politically, economically and socially are low or non-existent and our workshops will aim to motivate those attending to spur them into action to enhance their understanding how they can contribute.”
