YABT Participates in the MOAS for Students from Colombia's Caribbean

Barranquilla, Colombia – Youth has the capacity to build the future of the Americas, empowering democracy as a pillar for social and economic development. This was evident at the 3rd Model of the General Assemby of the OAS for Students in the Caribbean Region of Colombia – Uninorte 2013. The event took place at the Universidad del Norte (UNINORTE) in Barranquilla, Colombia on September 26-29, 2013. This was organized by the Organization of American States (OAS) and the International Relations Program of UNINORTE.

One could see the enthusiasm of the students entering the Coliseo Los Fundadores, proud of being selected to participate in the MOAS. The young people prepared for the event during three months, receiving support from the professors, as well as other students and collaborators of UNINORTE. This type of activities can be life-changing for many young people in the region.

MOAS is a program of the General Secretariat of the OAS, created to promote democratic values amongst youth in the hemisphere, through simulating the General Assembly of the OAS. For more information on the program please visit: www.moas.oas.org.

The MOAS Uninorte 2013 General Commission focused on: Social Charter of the Americas, and the four commissions worked on the following: (1) Freedom of Expression and Information Technology, (2) Multidimentional Security, (3) Entrepreneurship and Youth, and (4) Financing the work of the OAS. Each commission had a Specialist available to support and guide the students in the elaboration of the resolutions.

The Third Commission focused on "Entrepreneurship and Youth" had six subtopics discussed in Working Groups and had the support of the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT), represented by Edgar Maestre. Mr. Maestre guided the working groups and shared information on entrepreneurship, public policy, among other subjects. (View Newsletter No. 3, MOAS Uninorte 2013, Spanish) The other commissions were supported by specialists Santiago Noboa and Ana María Lara, from the OAS Department on Economic and Social Development, and Giselle Gómez from Colombia's Office of Chanciller.

During the Opening Ceremony, Nelly Robinson, MOAS Program Coordinator, read a message sent by the OAS Assistant Secretary General, Ambassador Albert Ramdin: "We need youth who build solidarity with those who have less then others, who treat everybody equally and who are able to aid their communities in analyzing and solving issues similar to those discussed in this MOAS."

YABT reaffirms our comprimise to support the efforts of the OAS to promote democratic values among young women and men, making entrepreneurship a determinant factor for the development of the region. Programs such as Young Americas Forum, among others, created a direct channel for youth participation.

"Always have clear goals and have perseverance to achieve your dreams", said Edgar Maestre at the end of the sessions of the Third Commission. Mr. Maestre also took the opportunity to invite the students to paticipate in the Virtual Forum that is taking place within the framework of the OAS Youth Conference.
