From the diversity, commitment and wealth of ideas of the youth, the historic National Autonomous University of Nicaragua, Managua, (Unan-Managua) was the setting for the honest and light-hearted dialogue between the Secretary General of the Organisation of Educational Cooperation (OEC), H.E. Mr Manssour Bin Mussallam and the President of the National Union of Students of Nicaragua (UNEN), Carlos Eduardo Díaz, as well as members of his Council.
“It was very important for me to have this meeting in the full knowledge that you are the cornerstone, the protagonists of the future. The OEC recognises you as the actors of development and of the future, let us act in the present to forge the future we want. I am here to listen to you,” said Bin Mussallam when addressing the student leaders.
President of the National Union of Students of Nicaragua (UNEN), Carlos Eduardo Díaz, referred to the trust that the university students place in the OEC as a platform for knowledge exchange, as he considered that young Nicaraguans have much to learn and to contribute to the countries of the South, and to the world in general.
The head of the OEC called for the Universal Declaration on Balanced and Inclusive Education to collectively draw up a roadmap to facilitate the coordination of the action referred to by the President of UNEN.
