Global Efforts

With more than half the global population under 30, it’s crucial to have them and their generations’ concerns included in decision-making processes. Despite being typically marginalized however, Tzu Chi seeks to bring power back to young voices with an NGO CSW parallel event hosted during CSW68 this March.

Called “Storytelling for Hope: Empowering Youth to Champion Gender Equality,” it brought roundtable-style discussions in small groups where each person had the chance to share. Of the format, Jadayah S. Muhammad, UN Representative of the International Youth Leadership Institute, said that “I love thinking about storytelling because it’s kind of one of the only ways that you get to see things through another person’s eyes.”

Eden Marish Roehr, Communications Associate at Voluntary Carbon Markets Integrity Initiative, agrees: “the story gives you that language that lets you imagine what is possible, and then kind  of move towards that vision. It’s so powerful.”
