UNP-led New Democratic Front (NDF) Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa on Friday launched the Youth Charter on empowering youth towards a sustainable future, as a part of his election manifesto.

This dynamic Youth Charter incorporates the hopes and aspirations of the younger generation in an actionable manner. According to Presidential candidate Premadasa’s visionary leadership, this segment is the most critical for the future development and growth narrative of Sri Lanka.

The Youth Charter reflects a progressive and decisive commitment to ensure that the youth will play both a central and active role in the country. Once elected as the President of Sri Lanka, Premadasa said he would provide a platform for the development of national programmes and initiatives under his personal leadership. The Youth Charter commits to ensuring that youth are given every opportunity to use their talent, skills and competencies so that they can be the best version of themselves and in the process take Sri Lanka forward, providing youth the best opportunity and platform to excel in their chosen fields.

The Charter focuses on diversity and social harmony, privacy, holistic development, youth participation, education and skills development, poverty alleviation and social inclusion, sustainable livelihoods, youth employment and entrepreneurship, youth health, peace-building, protecting the environment and sustainability, culture, sports and recreation, differently-abled youth, professionalisation of youth work and youth innovation.

“As the role-model and icon of youth in Sri Lanka, UNP Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa launched the Youth Charter recently, to demonstrate his ambitious plans to empower youth towards a sustainable future. Sajith has always to connect to the youth in a personal way and this dynamic Youth Charter incorporates the hopes and aspirations of the younger generation in an actionable manner,” said a press release from the UNP.

“In countries around the world, the youth are demanding change and electing young and dynamic leaders to take charge of the economy and build an inclusive future. Responding to this growing trend, Sajith Premadasa’s Youth Charter articulates the hopes and dreams of millions of youth across the country,” it added.
