Lutrelle John, a student of the Sir Novelle Richards Academy and a Youth Representative from Antigua and Barbuda, delivered a powerful speech at the recent SIDS Global Children and Youth Action Summit.

As a delegate during the official opening of the 4th International SIDS Conference, Lutrelle passionately shared his vision and that of his peers.

Youth representation is crucial for shaping a sustainable and resilient future for Small Island Developing States (SIDS). As the leaders of tomorrow, young people bring fresh perspectives, innovative ideas, and unwavering passion to the table.

By actively engaging in decision-making processes and advocating for their rights, youth representatives like Lutrelle are ensuring that their voices are heard and their concerns addressed.

The SIDS Global Children and Youth Action Summit and the 4th International SIDS Conference provide essential platforms for youth to contribute to the global conversation on sustainable development.

Through their participation, young delegates are not only learning valuable skills but also forming networks and collaborations that will drive positive change in their communities and beyond.

As we look to the future of SIDS, it is clear that the energy, creativity, and determination of youth will be instrumental in overcoming the challenges posed by climate change, economic instability, and social inequalities. By empowering and supporting young leaders, we can build a brighter, more equitable future for all.
