    UNICEF was founded in 1946 to meet the urgent needs of children in Europe and China after the war. Recently, and in the past few years, wars and conflicts have increased. Natural and moral disasters are what led to the displacement of many children, reaching 37 million refugees all over the world. The number is catastrophic. I want to ask
    Do you think that development and modern technology have a relationship with what we are today in terms of problems, conflicts and disasters, and was life in the past better?
    Can UNICEF issue a decision not to displace children and women and protect them in their area of ​​residence and oblige the world to do so?
    What is your vision for this issue in the near future?

    Hi Miss Amelie, my question is about is about climate change, climate change is refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. These shifts may be natural, such as through variations in the solar cycle according to the United nations, the emission of green house gases are one of the major causes so my question is can the UNICEF no make a law that industries should produce for a specific time and end at a specific time for example the can produce form January to June then from July till December the will stop production to help reduce the gases in the atmosphere cause if production continues the gases will keep accumulating.

    Hello, Miss Emily, I am very happy to talk to you. I want to ask you some questions that have come to my mind since reading the Politics and Youth Festival. First, can we do anything that works to develop the capabilities, politics and leadership of young people? Why and why not? My boss in issuing laws and putting them in place? And how is that?

  • happy_moon | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Dec 2022

    You said that you use social networking sites to spread political awareness. Well, the simple question is why did you choose social networking sites specifically?! Such as Facebook and Google, and you did not, for example, choose leaflets and publish them everywhere, or appeals to parents for the awareness of their children, and you have a high position as UNICEF ambassador, so you are able to use other means, or did you use them because they are the most widespread in this time?!

  • authentic_rainforest | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 03 Dec 2022

    Hi Amelie we ve a very conservative education system based on cramming ..although education ministers r working in my country but there is difference in public nd private education institutions. Did u feel it in urchildhood ?? How can public schools work more on activities as they dont spend too much on resources as in private sector where parents r paying off heavy fees . ?? My question is do u think this difference is a big cause not to producing such people who can effectively play their roles for their countries??
