Manifesto

 

We, the inter­na­tional ini­tia­tive group of “Youth Time” move­ment, com­ing from dif­fer­ent coun­tries of the world, gath­ered in Prague on 11th Decem­ber 2010, declare the fol­low­ing:

The young gen­er­a­tion is the proac­tive part of the global soci­ety. We, the young peo­ple, are inter­ested in plan­ning and shap­ing our own future as well as the future of next gen­er­a­tions.

Sol­i­dar­ity of young gen­er­a­tions should offer alter­na­tives to the global neg­a­tive ten­dency of self­ish­ness and con­sumerism, which leads to atom­iza­tion of soci­eties.

Being part of our soci­eties, we sup­port the fol­low­ing values:

  • equality;
  • solidarity;
  • harmony;
  • civic participation;

  • security;
  • responsibility;
  • respect for family;
  • traditions and heritage of the past;
  • spirituality;
  • active approach for the future;
  • intercultural and intergenerational dialogue;
  • peace;
  • synergy;
  • leading by example.

 

PRIORITIES:

There­fore, we define our pri­or­i­ties as follows:

  • to cre­ate a plat­form for pro­mo­tion of the “Youth Time” move­ment, its val­ues and prin­ci­ples as stated above
  • to pro­mote aware­ness among the youth con­cern­ing global challenges
  • to encour­age active, open and equal dia­logue among youth worldwide

Youth Time International Movement

Background

On October 4, 2010, on the Island of Rhodes in Greece, 150 energetic young people gathered to attend the first Rhodes Youth Forum. They came from 34 different countries to listen to reports and to talk about issues the world’s social develop­ment. During the forum participants discussed questions concerning everyday life which young people often do not pon­der: “How do young people see their future? What differences exist in the worldviews of young people from different countries and regions of the world? What can be done to pave the way towards a better future?” As the result of the Rhodes Youth Forum a new initiative to create an organization that could continue to support the activities of the youth on the ongoing basis was launched. This new international youth movement was officially founded on December 11, 2010 in Prague. The Prague manifesto of Youth Time specified the guiding principles of the new international movement. The name of the movement, “Youth Time”, refers to the years of the youth as the happiest and most active period of life. Young people should use it properly in order to do their best for their own future and the future of older and younger generations.
