International Youth Day

International Youth Day

To celebrate young people around the world
and their potential to build a more humane and responsible society

There are many challenges that the young people of today or tomorrow will have to face, which is why it is necessary to encourage and precede them in implementing the transformations necessary to achieve the Goals of the 2030 Agenda.

The UN has long understood the importance of the new generations in safeguarding and developing an inclusive and global concept of civilization.

As early as 1985, the first International Year of Youth was celebrated.Ten years later, the General Assembly adopted the World Programme of Action for Youth, establishing the international day dedicated to young people, and outlining the guidelines that at the national and international levels guarantee support in improving the conditions of the new generation. Young people are, in fact, at the heart of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

"Young people need role models, not critics."

(John Wooden, American basketball player and coach)
