Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma kicked off the Youth Forum in Hambantota, Sri Lanka with a speech that spoke highly of social media. Mr Sharma went on to explain that today’s youth have an opportunity to speak out like never before. In fact he stated the youth should direct this CHOGM!
Young people have never before had such ability and opportunity as this generation enjoys of communicating easily and instantly with fellow youth worldwide.
And how in the world would they do that? Social media of course! He expected that “Facebook and Twitter will be ablaze with discussion this week pointing to the Commonwealth and its potential”. We hope so too. You could also connect on the Commonwealth’s own network.
