Queen Rania Takes Part in Panel Discussion

Davos, Jan. 26 (Petra) -- It is not every day that youth take center stage amidst leaders at the World Economic Forum. Friday, they did just that as five youth joined Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan and Chancellor Gordon Brown of the United Kingdom in a frank panel discussion where they voiced their concerns about the state of the world and challenged the leaders to set up a Global Education Fund.

The youth identified two pressing challenges in today's world: the need for collective action to ensure quality global education, and the need for active global citizens who strive for unity and diversity.

Her Majesty welcomed the youth, who partook in the youngest panel discussion to take place at the forum. "We have to look at young persons not just as persons in the making, but as active agents, as people who we have to bring into the conversation…increase their participation, recognize their voices and include them in the decision making process," said Queen Rania.

Davos, Jan. 26 (Petra) -- His Majesty King Abdullah II on Friday challenged delegates at the World Economic Forum in Davos to use their insights, tools and strategies to articulate a new vision for the Middle East.

The King said that such a vision should be one “of ordinary life where people can go to shop or work without fear … where ambulances don’t face checkpoints to get the sick to hospitals … where young people are able to build families and plan long careers … where the first-grade students of 2017, Israeli and Palestinian, can look back as adults, and have no memory of the conflict years.” Petra

They have people who write it just like other royals. They might say what they would like to include in the speech and people write it up, or 2 or 3 speeches are written up and they choose which the prefer to read.
