The Second Summit of Children and Youngsters was opened today in Puno (alongside with the Fourth Continental Summit of Indigenous Peoples), an event that is gathering representatives from more than 23 countries.

The president of the Province Federation of Saraguro (Loja, Ecuador), Jose Huaman, said that “we are here to discuss not only the importance of our culture and our languages, but also to discuss the economic systems of our countries."

He said that this meeting will serve to determine what are the rights of children and young people, and remarked that this summit’s goal is to submit the conclusions to the International Court of Justice at the UNO.
