Celebrating the International Youth Day
As with every year, the 12th August will be celebrated worldwide as the International Youth Day. Last year was announced as the International Year of Youth commencing on the 12th of August 2010, and thus it will be now coming to an end. The program of the event encourages young people around the world to organize activities and raise awareness about the situation of youth in their country. The most creative activities are featured on the Program’s website to provide a sense of how the International Youth Day is being commemorated around the world and to encourage other youth to take action. So if you think you have a good idea and if you decide to hold an event in celebration of the International Year of Youth, visit social.un.org/iyyevents and submit your event. You can also take part in the relevant discussions entering facebook.com/UNyouth.
