سارة أبوشعر MBC: التعليم خط الدفاع الأول ضد الإرهاب | Education First Line of Defense Against Terror


She had just finished delivering an inspiring speech at the World Youth Forum when media channels began to activate with discussion about her powerful delivery and strong message and people started to ask: who was the speaker? Joining us over Skype is the activist for education, youth and women: Sarah Abushaar To begin, Sarah, let me ask you about your take on the World Youth Forum especially as the forum took place amidst numerous leaders and persons of authority What was the message you delivered to them? At the outset, I’d like to thank you for having me In response to your question, some years back I had gained the opportunity to deliver the graduation address at Harvard I called my message: The Harvard Spring In it, I had called for a revolution in minds, not in arms and weapons… I reinforced this call at the World Youth Forum where my message to leaders and those in authority was: to focus on education of their people While the news grabs our attention with issues of oil prices and conflict, we lose sight of what is far more important and decisive to determining the wealth and peace of our countries Our youth have the ability to represent a powerful natural resource far more important than oil and gas and without finite supply if we invest the enormous amounts that we waste today on war and weapons in the education of our young people And I’m not speaking about any education, but a differentiated education This is our countries’ most effective defense against terror and wars We often fight terror with war but this is not the solution This is precisely what breeds terror in the future We fight terror with thinking and culture.. with curriculums that foster independent thinking not the negation of difference and that provide young people the freedom and the chance to think big and dream big not confining their thinking and expression Our nations progress when our people progress This was the message that I sought to deliver to leaders and authority Sarah, you spoke about the critical role of education My question to you is: is education, alone, sufficient? No, certainly not. And this was the second part of my message That education alone is not enough We need to empower young people to engage them and enable them to participate in building up their societies I was 18 when I gained the chance to intern at the White House This empowered in me a sense that I had a role in impacting policy and making a real difference for society It filled me with a sense of empowerment and a strong sense of responsibility toward society Very often, I participate in conferences and forums on youth where we discuss challenges and issues facing young people and yet the youngest person representing the voice of youth is 60 years old And it’s true, he was a youth — but 30 years ago… We need to create the space for young people to participate in shaping a future and building a world that we will live As societies, we tend to regard young people as though they are “the problem” but young people can be a big part of the solutions if we enable young people’s participation and engagement in governance So, do you intend by this that by empowering young people and creating the chance for them to participate for them to take the place of previous generations? Can you provide further perspective? No, what I intend by this is for young leaders to be able to work with leaders and to take part in drawing out the roadmaps forward Because if young people have the sense that they are working constructively on building something there would be little rationality for young people to think of destroying that — of destroying what they build I’m not calling for a generation to take the place of another Rather, to enable young people to have a real part and to join in the work of building up their worlds My last question to you, Sarah: What is the message you deliver to young people? Of course The work of change and progress is not solely the responsibility of our governments As young citizens, we have an important role to play, too, and a large responsibility We cannot simply stand off to the side, arms crossed and say: we will participate when things get better We are an important part of improving things My message to young people was Persist in your audacious dreams. Persist in what you believe in and work toward them everyday And you will find that probabilities and impossibilities start to mean very little and that we can break probabilities with hope and hard work Don’t lose hope and look to failure as final and definitive and instead as the push that powers us forward to try again I don’t believe in impossible I believe we have the ability to break the impossible My experience has given me good reason to believe in big dreams and in striving toward them with strong determination and perseverance With us via Skype was the activist for education, youth and women Sarah Abushaar – thank you I return to you, my colleagues Let us provide our commentary on what we discussed First off, I’d like to give a hats off to you and and a hats off to Sarah Thank you for casting light on this inspiring personality Sarah summarizes the fundamentals of battling the challenges of life Her life’s title: “It is hard, but it is not impossible” “There is no impossible..” Definitely, I appreciated that she is persistent and determined She has not grown disillusioned What draws me, more and more, as of late is the number of young people who have started to stand up and speak up — to take on leadership in important places speaking up before powerful leaders without fear and with all courage and ability — — It’s because they live what they are speaking of You see, he who speaks up, must read He who can create from the heart of challenge speaks freely without the need to be told what to say Thank you, once again, Hazim We’ll be right back after the break

  1. Very nice and totally agree with you. I am Jordanian citizen, and recently had a chance to work with USPTO_ United States for Patent and Trademark office, and this was my first time to feel that I am contributing in building something, my opinion is very important and heard. In a nutshell, involving youth in building the countries is the first step towards the reinssanance

    we learn from imam Hussain to try and save the life of even the enemy!,
    Imam Hussain when he saw some of his enemies dying in the desert of thirst yes those whom were searching for him to put him in jail or to kiill him he told his family to give his and their enemies from the water which they carried for their long journey to iraaq and to not forget the horses of the enemies as well.
