Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Floyd Green, is urging Jamaica’s youth to get involved in achieving sustainable consumption.


In his International Youth Day message, Mr. Green said that this year’s theme “Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production” focuses on poverty eradication and how young people can lead the way in fostering sustainable consumption”.


He says, “young people can make a difference and young people must make a difference. It is our Jamaica it is our future. What are we going to do to ensure that we have a Jamaica to enjoy in the future.


Adding that the age of social entrepreneurship provides significant opportunities for young people to give back to their communities while still making a profit, Mr. Green implored young to partner with leaders in their communities and nationally, as young people have the solutions to help Jamaica achieve its goals.
