“I have met many young, displaced persons as the Patron of DRC. I have listened to their aspirations and dreams. It is obvious to me that they have the potential to become contributors and resources in the societies in which they reside. We all have an obligation to help them unleash this potential.”
“Today, we’ll discuss the challenges and opportunities facing young people living in displacement – who have been disproportionally affected by #COVID19. But in my meetings with young people, I’m often moved by how strong their aspirations and dreams are,” HRH Crown Princess Mary pic.twitter.com/5EyMJTXtzi— Danish Refugee Council (@DRC_ngo) December 15, 2020
“In my capacity as patron of @DRC_ngo, I often meet young people, & they share with me their concerns, dreams, hopes and ambitions. This is crucial to understand – and to implement solutions to the challenges they face. We have to hear it from them,” HRH Crown Princess Mary pic.twitter.com/37fisyHblh— Danish Refugee Council (@DRC_ngo) December 15, 2020
“We need to look at partnerships in innovative ways – and anchor them locally. The day confirmed youth as powerful agents for change. We as global community need to learn and listen and work with youth to find solutions. We can only move forward together,” HRH Crown Princess Mary pic.twitter.com/zel0PQo3gs— Danish Refugee Council (@DRC_ngo) December 15, 2020
