Culture as a Resource for Sustainable Development


At present, an estimated 50% of the world’s inhabitants are under 25 years old. Moreover, there are millions of children and young people who suffer from numerous afflictions: poverty, illiteracy, exclusion from school, violence, forced labour, prostitution, or drug abuse... No country is left untouched. How can we help young people across the world and focus on developing their independence, rather than dependence on charity? According to some Architects of Change, introducing them to the rich culture that surrounds them and educating them will give them the resources they need to develop and participate.
