Bratislava, July 27 (TASR) – Dominik Povraznik has become Slovakia’s UN Youth Delegate and will thus represent the Slovak young generation within the UN Youth Delegate Programme this year as well as share the acquired experience with his compatriots, TASR learnt from the Education Ministry on Friday.

“It’s a great honour for me to be nominated to represent the Slovak youth on the international scene. I view this as a great responsibility and commitment … I will work on improving the position of young people in decision-making processes at local, regional, national and also at international levels,” said the student of international relations at the Masaryk University in Brno who was chosen from among 32 candidates.

As part of his mandate, Povraznik would like to address the issue of fake news in Slovakia and how to combat it. He would also like to raise awareness on sustainable development goals in the country.
