International Youth Day

On December 17, 1999, the United Nations General Assembly, in its resolution 54/120,

decided that August 12 would be declared International Youth Day pursuant to the recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth (Lisbon, 8-12 August 1998).

The General Assembly recommended the organization of public information activities in support of the Day as a means of promoting awareness of the World Program of Action for Youth,

which was adopted by the General Assembly in its resolution 50/81 in 1996.

Celebrate International Youth Day annually on August 12, to draw and celebrate the international community’s attention to youth issues

the potential of young people as partners in the global community of our time.

The work of UNESCO’s Youth Program emphasizes that young people are not just beneficiaries, but also leaders and essential partners in finding solutions to the issues facing the world’s youth today.

They should participate fully in social development,

and their communities must provide the necessary support for them in this regard.

In this sense, the UNESCO Youth Program seeks, in line with the UNESCO Operational Strategy for Youth (2014-2021), to provide an enabling environment to achieve this goal, by highlighting youth voices and encouraging them to act.
