International Youth Day 12th August

International Youth Day an initiative that celebrates the qualities of young people and that recognises the challenges that today’s youth can face.

It’s not just to protect them, but to include them in the development of communities around the world, whether they’re rich or poor.

International Youth Day began in 2000 and was organised by the United Nations to celebrate the contribution that young people make in education, employment, conflict resolution and social justice to name a few.

Among the focal areas for youth development and protection with this UN initiative include education, employment, the environment, delinquency, girls and young women, HIV/AIDS and intergenerational relations. These were officially decided upon in 1995, the tenth anniversary of the International Year of the Youth.
