International Youth Day

August 12, 2015

International Youth Day Awareness Day Action

International Youth Day is organised by the United Nations’ (UN) and is celebrated on August 12th every year. International Youth Day recognises efforts of the world’s youth in enhancing global society. It also aims to promote ways to engage them in becoming more actively involved in making positive contributions to their communities.

International Youth Day: Youth and Mental Health

On 17 December 1999, in its resolution 54/120, the United Nations General Assembly endorsed the recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth (Lisbon, 8-12 August 1998) that 12 August be declared International Youth Day.

The theme of International Youth Day 2014 was “Youth and Mental Health.”

Youth with mental health conditions can often experience stigma and discrimination, which in turn can lead to exclusion and/or discourage people from seeking help for fear of being negatively ‘labelled’. UN

International Youth Day falls under the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.It talks about the 2015 event and it’s theme of ‘Youth Civic Engagement’ and says on its website:

On 12 August 2015, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) with the support of the UN Inter-agency Network on Youh Development is organizing an event to commemorate International Youth Day under the theme Youth Civic Engagement.

International Youth Day 2015 Online Campaign #YOUTHDAY

The engagement and participation of youth is essential to achieve sustainable human development. Yet often the opportunities for youth to engage politically, economically and socially are low or non-existent.

More efforts are needed to raise awareness about the importance of youth civic engagement and its benefits to the individual and to society, including for sustainable development as well as resilience and wellbeing. The International Youth Day 2015 campaign aims at promoting civic engagement and participation of youth in politics and public life, so that young people can be empowered and bring a full contribution to society, development and peace.  You can be part of these efforts!
