LUXEMBOURG – Last event of the year, this Monday, for the Youth Parliament. They were in the House presenting their resolutions.
Inflation, modernization of school life and floods. Here are the topics covered by the resolutions of the Youth Parliament presented and discussed this Monday in the Chamber of Deputies. This event is always the last of the year. But this is the last of its president Iness Chaki.
“For the past four years, my whole life has been focused on the Youth Parliament. I accepted other mandates and therefore left the Youth Parliament. I learned things there that you don’t learn in school. Like public speaking, writing reports, organizing meetings. Thanks to the Youth Parliament, doors are opening to us. It is a non-formal education of young people”, she explains.
“We have been heard”
Regarding school life, young people are asking for the creation of additional performance groups in the languages of instruction, the setting up of first aid and self-defence courses. Faced with floods, they encourage more regular cleaning of watercourses, carry out safety measures to reduce the risk of sewer backup. And in the face of inflation, they are asking to revise the shopping basket which is used to calculate the indexation, by removing energy expenditure from the calculation and compensating for it by aid to the most affected households.
“It went extremely well, says delighted, Iness Chaki, at the end of this afternoon of exchanges. We have been heard. There were no negative reviews. The deputies agreed with us on certain points”.
