This resolution urges the 57 participating states in the OSCE to commit to involving young people in decision-making and sustainable development for the well-being of society. It also calls on OSCE to foster peace of mind and make Europe a safer place to live in.

The resolution identifies the developmental challenges facing young people today, and recommends valid entry points at regional, national and international levels. Such youth strategies aim to empower youths and guarantee young people’s human dignity, freedom, social justice, solidarity and equity.

Partit Demokratiku said it is proud to foster Malta's success abroad, by leading by example, participating constructively with international and European bodies, and striving for Malta to succeed not through loopholes, opportunism and greed, but through proper cooperation and engagement.
