Sydney, Australia — The Dalai Lama has called on young people to work to make the world a better place. All individuals can make a change, he says.
At a press conference in Sydney on Monday, he said young people must make the most of the 21st century.
“You are the main generation to utilise the 21st century,” he said.
“And also in your hands (is) a better world, or miserable world at the end of this century.”
The main theme of his tour is the need to develop both individual and universal responsibility to tackle climate change and other future challenges.He said he was encouraged that governments around the world were taking climate change seriously.
