International Youth Day, observed on August 12th annually, celebrates the potential and capabilities of young individuals worldwide.
The significance of International Youth Day 2023 lies in recognizing youth as a cornerstone for positive global and local transformations.
The day was first celebrated in 2000, originating from a recommendation by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth in 1999.
United Nations efforts since 1965 have aimed at fostering values of peace, respect, and intercultural understanding among youth.
Each year's International Youth Day focuses on a specific theme; 2023's theme is "Green Skills for Youth: Towards a Sustainable World."
Green skills encompass technical knowledge, abilities, values, and attitudes for sustainable living and resource-efficient practices.
These skills include using green technologies, making environmentally sustainable decisions in work and life, and promoting sustainability.
International Youth Day 2023 emphasizes integrating green skills to encourage eco-conscious choices in professional and daily spheres.
The celebration underscores the importance of investing in green skill development to empower youth for a sustainable future.
