International Youth Day is observed on August 12 every year. The United Nations had in 1999 designated August 12 as International Youth Day. The first International Youth Day was celebrated on August 12, 2000.

Established on the recommendation of the World Conference of Ministers, International Youth Day provides an opportunity to recognise young talents and aims at coming up with solutions for the issues faced by the youth. It emphasises on the rights of young people to have access to education, employment, healthcare, monetary services and participation in public life. 

International Youth Day is

important as several young people across the world are struggling with multiple issues related to physical or mental health, education and employment.

The theme for International Youth Day 2022 is "Intergenerational solidarity: Creating a world for all ages”. 

With currently 1.8 billion youth in the world, making up over a quarter of the global population and forming the largest youth population in history, let’s come together and celebrate the potential of young people and reaffirm their right to live in a safe, secure and happy environment.
