Active engagement of youth in sustainable development efforts is key to achieving sustainable, inclusive and stable societies and to preventing challenges to sustainable development, including climate change, unemployment, poverty, gender inequality, conflict, and migration. However, truth be told, young people are almost three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and continuously exposed to lower quality of jobs, inequalities, and longer school-to-work transitions.
"My ID-entity" is a photo exhibition illustrating how the EU and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) support refugee registration in Bangladesh. The EEAS and the European Commission’s Service for Foreign Policy Instruments hosted the exhibition to mark the occasion of World Refugee Day on 20 June 2019, following its previous stop on Place Flagey in Brussels, Belgium. The exhibition is symbolic for the joint endeavour by the EU and UNHCR to help and support Rohingya refugees.
