🗨️ “Young people are on the frontlines of the struggle to build a better future for all. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the dire need for the kind of transformational change they seek – and young people must be full partners in that effort.” 🗨️
– UN Secretary-General António Guterres
☀️ Every year on August 12, people worldwide celebrate International Youth Day. The UN Inter-Agency Network in Youth Development members and youth organisations frequently offer suggestions when the Focal Point on Youth is choosing a theme for the day. Additionally, it plans a virtual celebration of the Day. The programme encourages young people all across the world to plan events to spread awareness of the plight of young people in their own nation.
💯 The theme for National Youth Day 2022 is “It’s all in the mind,” a key teaching of Swami Vivekananda. He was known for preaching religious tolerance and combining Indian spirituality with western material progress.
Emphasys Centre supports this day with its participation in a number of Erasmus+ Youth Sector projects such as:
- SEE FIRST
- BACK TO THE FUTURE
- RuRAL LAB
