International Youth Day

On the 12th of August, WHO and UNESCO celebrate International Youth Day and would like to recognize young people around the world demonstrating their resilience, collective action and creativity in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The theme of International Youth Day 2020, “Youth Engagement for Global Action” seeks to highlight the ways in which the engagement of young people at the local, national and global levels is enriching national and multilateral institutions and processes, as well as draw lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics can be significantly enhanced.
