Youth at leisure in shopping mall

International Youth Day

The International Youth Day was first introduced by the UN in 2000. It’s an awareness day designated by the United Nations. The purpose of the day is to draw attention to a given set of cultural and legal issues surrounding youth. You can read more about the day here: https://www.un.org/en/events/youthday/

 

This year, they seek to put the spotlight on youth engagement through the following three interconnected streams:

  1. Engagement at the local/community level;
  2. Engagement at the national level (formulation of laws, policies, and their implementation); and,
  3. Engagement at the global level.

 

Now, I hear you thinking, ‘What the unicorn am I supposed to do with this?’.

 

Here’s the answer: show something you offer for the youth, or how the youth is engaged in your local community. Or, invite them to your place today for a free drink or ice cream. Or, organize something for your local community and ask the youth to help you out. Make something to cheer-up the elderly in your town. You can keep it super easy and small.

 

You can easily invite the youth to join you on this challenge by looking for local Facebook groups. Make an event on Facebook about what you’re doing, share it in those groups, and ask for their participation. Even if the kids themselves are not part of the group, then their parents likely are.

 

Give it your own spin today. Don’t feel like really organizing something? Then maybe don’t use the International Youth Day hashtags, but do show what you offer for kids at your place.

 

The event is finished.
