8

The United Progressive Party’s (UPP) Mobilization efforts have intensified with the launch of UPPLiftment Week, a series of events designed to bring all generations on board to embrace the Party’s main message of “Relief, Recovery and Shared Prosperity.”

This week of activities begins with the Youth Forum, which will be spearheaded by Progressive Youth, the youth arm of the (UPP).

It will be held under the theme, YOUR VOICE MATTERS, on Sunday December 4th at 6pm at Freedom Hall, Lower Newgate Street.

The Youth Forum will feature a panel of UPP Candidates who will make presentations and policy announcements about youth development, housing, jobs, entrepreneurship, education, sports and other issues.

Youth delegates from all 16 constituencies will have an opportunity to contribute their ideas and provide feedback on the UPP’s plans and programs.

Guest moderators of the forum will be J’Truth, social media influencer and Chandera Codrington, attorney-at-law.

 

“The future of our nation is defined by the youth. They are some of our nation’s greatest assets and we want to ensure that they have a seat at the table to increase youth participation in governance,” said Hon. Jamale Pringle, Leader of the Opposition.

 

Youth engagement is high on the UPP agenda and the panel of candidates will create user-friendly pathways to speak directly to the youth on issues that this demographic cares deeply about.

According to UPP Political Leader, Harold Lovell, the UPP wants to create a better future for Antiguans and Barbudans of all generations.

 

“This forum provides a key opportunity to harness the energy of our youth in the development of our nation.

We need more intergenerational connections, conversations and collaboration to build the new inclusive Antigua and Barbuda that we envision for ourselves and generations to come.” Lovell said.

  4. Take a life and get put on UPP slate!!! What a strong message being sent to the youths.

  5. The two young people on Observer this morning were very impressive. They give us hope that they are paying attention and are ready to take this country forward. I look forward to hearing more about their ideas and aspirations for our dear country.

  6. UPP Spokesman CONVICTED PEDOPHILE IAN MAGIC HUGHES, VIOLATED his daughters friend. Youth time to call upon Harold loveLIE to condemn such actions and REMOVE MAGIC FROM UPP Airwaves.

  7. Looking forward to seeing and hearing from the youth! Very impressive! The young people will decide the election so I hope they will be listening keenly. They need representation who will enrich the people instead of just themselves.

  8. Congrats to the two young people on OBSERVER this morning. They did a magnificent job. The UPP Youth event is shaping up to be a wonderful event.
