International Youth Day focuses on the difficulties that some young people are experiencing throughout the world.
The theme of International Youth Day 2022 is “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages”. To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world needs to leverage the full potential of all generations. Solidarity across generations is key to sustainable development.
The purpose of International Youth Day is to raise awareness of any issues that may be facing the world’s youth to celebrate their achievements.
International Youth Day was created by the UN to help draw awareness to these issues as we strive to find solutions. It’s a day for reflection but also a day for taking action so get involved.
It’s an initiative that honors the traits of young people and that acknowledges the challenges that today’s fledging youth face. To support the elimination of these issues it is important that the youth is able to reach the right resources for education, wellbeing, medicine and more.
International Youth Day began in 2000 and was organized by the UN to recognize the input that young people make in education, community development, environmental groups, volunteering for different social projects.
The aim of this theme is to call attention to the ways in which the participation of young people at the national and international levels is complimenting national and multilateral institutions and processes. Visions for Nigeria Foundation recommended that public information activities be organized to support the Day as a way to promote better awareness of the World Program of Action for Youth
