Aug. 12th. – International Youth Day
12 August was first designated International Youth Day by the UN General Assembly in 1999, and serves as an annual celebration of the role of young women and men as essential partners in change, and an opportunity to raise awareness of challenges and problems facing the world’s youth.
2019 Theme: “Transforming education”
This year’s theme highlights efforts to make education more inclusive and accessible for all youth, including efforts by youth themselves.
International Youth Day 2019 will examine how Governments, young people and youth-led and youth-focused organizations, as well as other stakeholders, are transforming education so that it becomes a powerful tool to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
