 “No one is born a good citizen, no nation is born democratic. Rather, both are processes that continue to evolve over a lifetime. Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts itself from its youth severs its lifetime; and it is condemned to bleed to death” (Kofi Annan – Ex-Secretary General of the United Nations).
