Brazil Says Is Trying to Catch Up on Its Debt to Its Youngsters

    Brazil’s National Youth Secretary, Beto Cury, said that the Brazilian State has a debt to the country’s young people but that the federal government is making an effort to give priority to this segment of the population.

    “The Brazilian State owes a debt to its youngsters, and Lula’s Administration is taking consistent, significant, and decisive steps to give priority to the question of youngsters in the public policy sphere,” he said.


    Cury cited the creation of the Secretariat as, in itself, an advance, as well as the recent creation of the National Youth Council.


    “Brazil dragged its feet in getting involved with this question, but it came on strong, and, as far as I understand, correctly. According to Cury, “as far as the federal government is concerned, we want to make up for lost time, to recover this debt and to put Brazil among the countries that assigns first place to the country’s youth.”


    Cury participated in a meeting with representatives of non-governmental organizations that work with youth questions.


    During the meeting he received the Moving Agreements on from Paper report, drafted by more than 40 NGOs. The document, which had already been sent to the UN, in April, presents a diagnosis of the Brazilian government acts on behalf of youngsters in the 18-24 age bracket.
