Acting Prime Minister Dr. William Duguid fully endorses opportunities giving young Barbadians a voice on current affairs.
He says it’s critical they understand the importance of tackling issues on the national, regional and international stages.
The debating skills of some 40 students drawn from the island’s secondary schools were on show as dozens converged on Parliament for the Rotary in Barbados’ 9th Model United Nations.
The project exposes secondary school students to international relations.
Their focus was climate change.
Dr. Duguid says the youth are the future and commended the organisers, including the Rotary Club for conceptualizing the programme.
Resident UN Coordinator for Barbados, Didier Trebucq encouraged the future leaders to put people at the centre of all they do.
He reminded them they represent the best of the present and future of the development of the UN system.
