Geneva, 8 June 2015 – President Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera of Costa Rica was inaugurated today as ITU Patron for Youth and ICT at a special ceremony in Geneva. This builds on the BYND2015 Youth Summit organized by ITU in San José, Costa Rica in 2013 where young participants from around the world called on governments to provide more flexible, dynamic and open means of governance to reach more people more easily than presently possible. They emphasized that the key to a successful development paradigm will be innovation and asked for education systems that equip students with not just theoretical knowledge, but with a practical mix of marketable, innovative and relevant skills needed to compete in the global digital economy.
