------------------------------------------------------------------

QUEBEC YOUTH DECLARATION
CALL TO COMMITMENT

Let us rise and voice what we want for today and the years to come.
We call upon every man and woman, in all walks of life, to take concrete action in order to build a world that is more
just, more open and more united.
Our actions, no matter how small, have an impact on education, politics, culture, health, the environment and the economy.
We, the heirs of humanity and responsible for future generations, declare that:
Education can allow us to live in a world that is more just.
Through education, each person has a better understanding of the world and develops the skills to access better living conditions.
Basic education must be accessible to all.

LET US ACT

So that each person can learn to read, to write and to count.
Let us recognize that the family is the most conducive place to transmit values and knowledge
Let us facilitate the sharing of knowledge across the generational gap.
We must strive to keep on learning throughout our lives.
We believe that the role of education is to foster the development of critical thinking.
Critical thinking allows us to participate in society's debates, contribute new ideas and choose the most reliable sources
of information.

LET US ACT

So that critical thinking can become a constructive tool.
Let us kindle people's desire to take action and become involved,
Let us encourage all to seek to be informed and to enrich their ideas with those of others.
Freedom of expression must be respected for it is an expression of our humanity.
All must be able to insist that their representatives be freely elected and be accountable to all.

LET US ACT

So that each of us actively participates in our governments' and communities' choices.
Wherever there is dialogue; let us ensure that every point of view is respected.
We believe that all people are motivated by their culture and possess certain values.

LET US ACT

To promote cultural diversity.
Let us disseminate and encourage cultural expression in all forms.
Let us be open to others and their ideas
It is time for each of us to participate in finding solutions to the health and poverty problems that affect a large part of
the world's population, especially women.

LET US ACT

So that health promotion initiatives play an important role in school programs, community education and work
environments.
Let us share medical and food resources
Let us diffuse our knowledge and use the technologies so that each can access to quality health services and a safe
environment.
We consider that a healthy planet is essential to the development of humanity

LET US ACT

So that our lifestyles are in harmony with our planet's ecosystems.
Let us show greater responsibility and awareness regarding the changes and any disturbances we cause.
Let us recognize the value of the environment and ecosystems.
Let us put in place green initiatives and take part in those that already exist in our communities.
For these objectives to be reached, wealth must be more fairly distributed: economic prosperity must be used to
contribute to greater social justice.
Our economic choices must be well-informed, solidary and respectful of the environment and human rights.
Each of us has the power to influence the economy, regardless of our roles.

LET US ACT

For a better balance between economic development and social justice.
Let us encourage local producers.
Let us foster the development of fairer trade.
Let us take part in social economy initiatives where humans take precedence over profits.
Let us invest in socially responsible enterprises.
It is our duty to recognize, respect and promote human rights throughout the world.
We must recognize the collective rights of all people, including the first peoples and minority peoples.
Our daily actions must reflect those rights, for they ensure human dignity.
We are convinced that each and everyone must become involved in order to reach these goals of freedom, equity,
openness, respect, and solidarity.
Let us reject and denounce injustice.
Let us play a pivotal role for the future of humanity and of our planet.
In our own way, let each of us take a stand and act now!
