Yoruk Kurtaran: Empowerment
About this talk
Yoruk Kurtaran, CEO of Community Volunteers Foundation(TOG) , reminds us that young people and their needs should be addressed today and policies should not be for young people tomorrow. He argues that young people should and could be able to participate in the society, economy and politics today – if they are provided with more opportunities outside of education, entrance barriers are lowered, and gender issues are mainstreamed.
This talk was recorded by İltek Media on International Women's Day as part of our "Guys Who Rock" talk series in 2014.
