Meeting on 2013 China’s Urban Youth Survey Report Held in Beijing

IESCO, Feb.24 A thematic meeting on 2013 China’s Urban Youth Survey Report was held late Monday in Beijing by UN Youth Empowerment and Urban Ecological Safety Committee (UNYEUESC). The meeting examined the progress of the survey and conducted  interviews with China’s urban youths under the guidance of UN-Habitat. UN-Habitat officials, leaders of International Ecological Safety Collaborative Organization (IESCO), as well as leaders and students of Beijing International Vocational Education School attended the meeting. 

Anantha Krishnan, senior advisor to Youth Empowerment and Ecological Safety Committee, said he was glad to witness the signing of the cooperation agreement between IESCO and Beijing International Vocational Education School early Monday, which he said marked the beginning of youth empowerment in China. Youth empowerment should be focused on to respond to the challenges of climate change and the best way to get youth integrated into society was to create equal environment in aspects like education, employment and entrepreneurship, Krishnan emphasized. 

The focus of China’s Urban Youth Survey of 2013 was “equal employment and the development of China’s urban youth” and the survey is close to conclusion. Liu Tianyin and Wang Runfei, consultants of the survey, briefed participants on the progress and achievements of the survey. They pointed out that “inequalities” in economy, society, policies, culture and opportunities were the problems currently facing most Chinese youngsters and they made analysis on the causes of  the “inequalities”.

Twenty students from Beijing International Vocational Education School participated in the meeting and expressed their own opinions on the current state of China’s education and youth empowerment.  They also discussed with UN-Habitat officials and the survey team. 

Oyebanji Oyelaran-Oyeyinka, director of UNYEUESC and  the Global Monitoring and Research Division at the UN Human Settlements Program, and Victoria Agnes Chebet, secretary-general of Youth Empowerment and Ecological Safety Committee, mentioned that the survey report was highly representative and efforts should be made in the aspects of policy, national awareness and culture to give the youth space and channels to fully present themselves.
