“We must live the spirit and commitment to unity in diversity. How can diversity be a strength, and young people can play an optimal role in building the commitment to unite to build the nation,” the ministry’s deputy of youth development, Asrorun Ni’am Sholeh, said here on Wednesday.
The Summit of the Youth Pledge Day commemoration will be held in the new capital Nusantara (IKN), Penajam Paser Utara, East Kalimantan, on October 28, 2022, with the theme “Bersatu Bangun Bangsa,” or “United to Build the Nation.”
According to Sholeh, in building a nation, there needs to be synergy from all parties. Not only young people, but all elements of society must also unite in order to realize the ideals of the nation, he added.
“Everyone has a responsibility to build the nation. We must promote the commitment to the youth pledge in the life of the nation and state. There has to be a collective awareness,” he said.
A series of events will be held at the Summit of the 2022 Youth Pledge Day, such as a youth camp, mass gymnastics, and a parade, he informed.
“We must support young people who have innovation and creativity to be able to excel,” Sholeh added.
He also explained the reason for choosing Nusantara as the location for the summit, saying it is a part of building history.
“IKN being selected is our joint commitment to building the future. It is one of the milestones in welcoming the golden era,” he remarked.
