تقليل الشعور باللامبالاة عند الشباب

نيروبي – لقد إلتزمت الدول الأعضاء في الأمم المتحدة عندما تبنت أهداف التنمية المستدامة قبل عامين بتخفيض "نسبة الشباب العاطلين عن العمل أو لا يحصلون على التعليم أو التدريب " بشكل كبير علما أن تحقيق هذا الإلتزام سيكون شبه مستحيل ما لم تزيد المشاركة السياسية لدى الشباب زيادة كبيرة.

إن الشباب هم عامل حاسم وحيوي من أجل إحراز تقدم وكما قال الرئيس الأمريكي باراك أوباما في خطابه سنة 2015 في نيروبي "لا يمكن لأي دولة أن تحقق كامل إمكانياتها ما لم تعتمد على مواهب كافة أفراد شعبها" و يشكل الشباب الآن نسبة كبيرة من هؤلاء الناس -  18٪ من سكان العالم على وجه التحديد -و هذه النسبة أكبر من ذلك بكثير في معظم بلدان العالم النامي و يبلغ متوسط العمر لسكان أفريقيا 19.5 سنة فقط.

وبالنظر إلى أعدادهم، ناهيك عن إرتفاع معدلات التعليم ومحو الأمية يمكن للشباب أن يحدثوا فارقا بحيث يشكلون الخطاب السياسي والنتائج الإنتخابية ولكن هذا يتطلب منهم أن يكونوا مشاركين ونشطين.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend.
