A three member delegation from Youth Revolution Clan (YRC) led by Rizwan Anwar and co-chaired by Ms Maha Jamil is participating in the United Nations (UN) Annual Youth Summit at Geneva, Switzerland these days.

Rizwan Anwar, Chairman YRC also serves as Global Youth Ambassador of the United Nations. The Young entrepreneur participated in the prestigious annual summit and shared his vision about active participation of youth in achieving the UN sustainable development goals for a better future.

While delivering his speech, Rizwan Anwar shared that with change, comes opportunity. As the world changes, we should understand our youth have evolving needs to unlock opportunities for sustainable growth and a need to act with our ecosystem of resources, tools, relationships and solutions. I suggest to Our Government , CSO’s and INGOs that Our sustainability strategy should have, at its core, a commitment to support our Youth and to help them achieve their wider sustainability ambitions.

The Pakistani delegation also highlighted the various projects which they are completing to equip the Pakistani youth in Pakistan. They vowed that the youth are not only leaders of tomorrow but they are also catalysts for huge changes we aspire to bring in society right now. We need to engage youth from the grassroot levels  for developing a sustainable future for all.

Youth Revolution Clan is a youth led organization working to uplift the socio economic conditions of Pakistani Youth and engaging them in positive activities.
