To mark the 22nd edition of International Youth Day (IYD), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), together with the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs hosted a webinar on “Transforming the Right Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Global Health”.


On this occasion, the Minister of Youth and Civic Education Mounouna Foutsou spoke with young people on the utilitarian use of platforms for exchanges and discussion between young people, within the headquarters of the United Nations information Centre in Cameroon (located in Tsinga).


In his speech, Mounouna Foutsou underlined the importance of exchanges between young people and institutions, which gave them access to information and communication platforms, dedicated to the supervision of young people.

Among the platforms is the YouthConnekt platform dedicated to exchanges between young people and economic partners and other young people.

For the representative of the Coordinator-United Nations System in Cameroon, Jean Jacques Massima, this exchange makes it possible to appreciate the efforts made by the Cameroonian Government and the International Community, in favor of the supervision of young people in terms of technological innovations and agricultural.


He particularly noted the accessibility to information for young people and recommended that young people make judicious use of technological innovations.
