CRI believes that the young people of Bangladesh have ideas; innovative, creative ideas which can help transform Bangladesh if they are afforded the right platform. There are numerous examples of talented young people making an impact in Bangladesh, be it through social and political activities or volunteer work in the community. Yet there are many people whose voices are not yet heard. CRI sees youth participation as a vital component for the future development of the country, and believes that the young people of Bangladesh do not have to wait until later in adulthood to shape their nation.
Let’s Ta!k provides a much-needed avenue for young people to constructively engage with Members of Parliament, ministers and other prominent politicians and debate topical issues which are of relevance to them. Through the Let’s Ta!K events, CRI helps to facilitate opportunities for informal but in-depth political dialogue among the future leaders of Bangladesh – the youth and the politicians. No topic is off the cards, there are no formalities nor are there pre-screened questions. Everything is up for discussion, and everyone is invited to share their opinion.
