We, the inter­na­tional ini­tia­tive group of Youth Time International 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;
  • community involvement;
  • sustainability;
  • 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.


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
  • to facil­i­tate the process of shar­ing knowl­edge, expe­ri­ence and val­ues between generations
  • to pre­serve national and cul­tural iden­tity while valu­ing unity and diversity
  • to engage the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the youth actively involved in the pri­vate, pub­lic and civil soci­ety sec­tors to pro­mote the
  • val­ues and prin­ci­ples of the “Youth Time” movement
  • to invite rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors to sup­port the “Youth Time” movement
  • to estab­lish and develop com­mu­ni­ca­tion and coop­er­a­tion between the “Youth Time” move­ment and fel­low organizations

Hereby, the ini­tia­tive group declares the foun­da­tion of the Youth Time International Movement with its orga­ni­za­tional struc­ture to be reg­is­tered in Czech Republic.
