World Population Day – 11 July 2006

I guess it’s not too late to talk about "World Population Day" and the United Nations agengy behind it – UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, which is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity.

This year, the focus is on "young people." I really like the theme of the poster promoting this special day. The message is clear.

Being young is tough.
You feel
But you’re vulnerable.
To drugs, HIV, pregnancy,
peer pressure.
You feel strong.
Powerless. Engaged. Shut out.
The future looks wide open.
You can take control.
Start now.
