  • 3 months   ago

The Ministry of Culture and Sports, represented by the Youth Affairs Department, will celebrate the Arab Youth Day, which will be marked for the first time today.

The Executive Office of the Council of Arab Ministers for Youth and Sports agreed in its 66th session to celebrate the Arab Youth Day on July 5, aiming to draw the attention of the Arab community to youth issues, and to celebrate the potential of this group as a major partner in the societies of the region, emphasizing that the youth are not just beneficiaries, rather they are leaders and essential partners in the efforts to find solutions to issues facing development in the Arab world, and in providing the necessary support for the future of their countries.

To mark the occasion, youth centers and youth committees in sports clubs in Qatar will organize several youth activities to strengthen ties between Arab youth, emphasizing their important role in developing and advancing their societies and finding solutions to their problems.

Director of the Youth Affairs Department at the Ministry of Culture and Sports Maha Al Rumaihi said that the Ministry celebrates the first edition of the Arab Youth Day through a host of targeted youth programmes and activities within the joint Arab action framework in the youth sector. It aims to promote cooperation and the exchange of expertise and experiences between youth leaders in various Arab countries to face challenges and respond to current and emerging youth problems and issues.

Al Rumaihi noted that the Youth Affairs Department would launch an initiative to support the youth in Qatar (citizens and Arab residents) in cooperation with the Local Committee of the Arab Trainers Union, which is a diploma in employment skills to empower Qatari and Arab youth with the most important skills required for the labour market.

She noted that all youth centers and youth committees in sports clubs in Qatar have been asked to focus on organising youth events on this day to highlight youth issues in the Arab world, based on the fact that the Qatari youth, who are proud of their national identity and belonging to the Arab nation, is an integral part of the Arab youth.
