‘Youth Adda’ explores ways to reduce inequalities

Jul 10, 2017

Issues about gender, economic and physical inequalities were raised at Youth Adda hosted by the civil society in New Delhi.

New Delhi: United Nations Volunteers India, in close partnership with NGOs like Pravah, Restless Development, and Commutiny, hosted a Youth Adda in New Delhi last week.

UNV Youth Addas are a series of events and activities where youth meet, learn and discuss the challenges of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Over 130 youth gathered at UN house to discuss and share their ideas about SDG-10 “Reduce Inequalities”. A highlight session of this Adda was devoted to the issue of inclusion of people with disabilities.

Guest speaker Fateh Whig, representing people with disabilities, led the group into mapping their interactions with disabled people.

Adda participants raised many issues about gender, economic and physical inequalities and expressed their keen observations and opinions on overcoming these inequalities. One example raised was how choosing to use a skin whitener may be related to inequalities. Participants also analysed how access to resources impacted personal actions and social interactions.

Underlining universal UN values of equality, democracy and fraternity, participants at the UNV Youth Adda voted to take action on creating a better world that would lead to a future with less glaring inequalities.
