“By including education on integrity in formal education programmes, young people will be equipped with the knowledge and tools required to actively promote democratic principles and values – such as transparency, impartiality, fairness and accountability – and they will thereby be able to act as agents for change and as drivers of demands for integrity in society,” was some of the words from her speech.
