It is important that we understand the values that characterise youth. It is vital that youth understand the world that they will inherit. The Druk Journal offers ideas and the space for this discourse. We invited interested writers, particularly young minds, to share their thoughts and ideas as Bhutan plans a vision for the future. It is the decisions made today that have an impact on the citizens of tomorrow. It is critical that the thoughts, the aspirations, and concerns of the youth are known, as we frame the policies and build a regulatory environment that sets the stage for tomorrow. Young Bhutanese need to reflect on questions that are as fundamental, and as important, as what does it mean to be Bhutanese? With this, they need to ask, what are the responsibilities of being the new generation?
