Sheikh Mohammed invites UAE youth to share ideas about future
ABU DHABI // Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid has invited UAE youth to share their thoughts about the future ahead of a two-day retreat next week.
The Vice President and Ruler of Dubai announced the retreat in a series of tweets on Tuesday and challenged young people to share their best suggestions on how the Government can empower them, using the hashtag #NationalYouthDialogue.
“Over the coming days, our focus will be on UAE youth: their dreams, aspirations and challenges, through holding a #NationalYouthDialogue,” Sheikh Mohammed said.
He asked for ideas on how to empower youth, support them in realising their roles in their country and enhance their productivity, as well as for the values the country wants for young men and women.
“What do we want from the young? What do they want from us? How do we help them achieve their ambitions and dreams?”
The ideas put forward will be discussed at the retreat next week, which will be attended by officials who deal with issues related to youth, as well as those behind the ideas shared through the hashtag, said Sheikh Mohammed.
“Most of our nation is made up of our youth: our future is in their hands,” said Sheikh Mohammed. “We are a young country, proud of its youth.”
