How do you motivate the youths living in developing world for the better future?

The mostly the youth from developing world are facing a lot of problems. It's because of corruption, less democratic practices and the major factor is the failure of the current leadership. There are many thing to be changed. And if you see the leadership in these countries, they're older, of family politics and don't have a willingness to bring change and which is resulting underdevelopment, corruption any political instability. And I'm sure this types of situation can be changed for this there should be;

Youth awareness campaign,

Pressure for the government from UN like body to enhance youth participation in politics and the government,

Youth friendly environment,

Youth led positive movement and many more.

Above mentioned are not only the solution but it can bring the better environment. And I hope if youth like us take initiative one day we can see better world in our lifetime. If talked about the politics youth are hating that and they don't even want to talk about it. But the bitter reality is that this bad politics lead by bad leaders is resulting our dark future. And if we just blame on them there will be no solution to our problems and to get better result we should be aware and start to take the lead. If youth becomes active we have many examples of the best result. So let's take lead for the change.
