Catch up on the action in these videos, and read some of the young participants’ views below!

We need to have more knowledge on the issues that is happening around the country as without adequate knowledge we cannot advocate properly
— Shahriar Sifat, Youth for Change
Youth must work with the Ministry of Youth and Sports and influence them to take proper youth friendly policies, as often policies are made without consulting with young people around the country
— Mohammad Hanif, Activista Network
Young people have very good participation and engagement in social issues but the problem lies as they all work under the umbrella of particular organizations. All should work under one platform to make bigger change
— Rokon Ahmed, Urban DRR project
