Rights of Youth

The committee passed a resolution on the rights of youth. In brief: Freedom of speech, of assembly, of organisation, of conscience, and of thought.

The right of citizenship, that is, the active participation in running the affairs of the country, whether local or national.

Equality of sexes. No discrimination on the grounds of sex for wages paid.

The right to work.

The right to adequate working conditions.

The right to education. There should be no economic or social barrier.

The right to recreation and leisure. The right to health—with emphasis on health rather than preventive medicine.
