The Government is preparing to revise the National Youth Policy 2010-2013 compiled by a committee which was appointed by the then Parliamentary Secretary for Youth and Sport, Dr Clyde Puli, in June 2008.
Youth workers and other persons were appointed to the Board by the Minister. KNŻ will be contributing to this revision by communicating directly with the newly appointed committee and giving its opinions and suggestions where relevant. However, KNŻ (Kunsill Nazzjonali taż-Żgħażagħ) is not represented on the Board. All necessary consultation must be finalised by December.
A report with all the amendments and additional information will be complied with the help of the organisations, explained KNŻ during yesterday’s meeting with various organisations. Representatives of Pulse, KSJC, MMSA, UHM, AGEE, INSITE, Għaqda tal-Malti and We Are were present for the meeting.
Keith Pace (KNŻ Secretary General) asked for more organisations to participate in the formation of this report, as this will help voice the opinions of youths, the same youths which are represented by these organisations. KNŻ will make sure that all organisations participating will receive a certificate for active participation whilst contributing to the drafting of the new National Youth Policy. Though not involved directly in the appointed board, KNŻ is serving an intermediary to pass on the messages of the organisations to the board.
