Young people, taking the leading role
published on 31.07.19
Yanis Lammari is the man behind the Youth ID Foundation, a non-governmental organization that was launched with the aim of inspiring new generations and strives to integrate young people with difficulties into mobility programmes. Lammari, who was once a student of the MSc in Finance Management at TBS Business School and also studied the Master in Finance and Sustainable Development with us, played a leading role in the days leading up to the Two Shores Summit of the Mediterranean Forum, which took place last June in Marseille. There, civil society from both sides of the sea worked to find specific solutions for a region that has historically struggled for recognition.
Youth ID, looking for solutions
Within this context, Yanis Lammari lay on the table some of the realities affecting the youth of today, the true driving force of any civil society that is looking to the future. Lammari expressed this himself in an article published in Salama magazine in the Maghreb and France, in which he emphasised that “relaunching the dynamics of cooperation in the Mediterranean is a potential solution to the many economic, ecological, social and political problems that we must face in both the south and the north of the Mediterranean.” In his opinion piece, which forms part of a series of articles in which Lammari analyses the youth of today, he also stressed the importance of the meetings prior to the Marseilles Summit, which welcomed up to 140 civil society players from around 15 Euro-Mediterranean countries. Energy, employment, education, tourism and sustainable development were some of the topics that were up for discussion, and they were conveyed to the leaders of the Summit in the form of initiatives, reflections and concrete proposals.
This project will continue on 27 October, during an event organised by the Mediterranean Forum, and in November in the city of Rabat, at a gathering that will see Youth ID collaborate with UNESCO.
