Egypt’s young talented actor Ahmed Dash took the helm as UNICEF’s international ambassador for the newly launched ‘Shabab Balad (‘Country’s Youth’) Initiative.’
Dash’s participation in the program will officially kick off with the live broadcast transmitted by UNICEF Egypt on their social media platforms on Thursday at 3 pm.
The live broadcast will include a symposium to address climate change crises, in which Dash, 21, will talk about solid waste management and its relationship to climate change with climate experts and UN representatives who will participate in virtual and hybrid meetings.
The Shabab Balad initiative is an Egyptian version of UNICEF’s international Generation Unlimited Initiative, which was launched by the UN in 2018 and operates in over 50 countries across the world.
According to UNICEF, the Shabab Balad Initiative is the first offspring of the Generation Unlimited Initiative in the region.
“Shabab Balad is the first public-private partnership platform for youths that was created to give young people a platform to express themselves and find opportunities,” UNICEF explained.
It’s worth mentioning that the theme of this initiative is “every boy and girl in the world have the opportunity to attend school, learn, or train so they can have a suitable job by 2030.”
