International Youth Day: History


The UN General Assembly started working hard in 1965 to have an impact on young people. They supported the Declaration on Promoting the Values of Peace, mutual respect, and understanding among people.

By identifying rising leaders and providing them with tools to solve the needs of the world, the UN started committing time and resources to empower the youth.

International Youth Day was established when the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth recommended it to the UN General Assembly on December 17, 1999.

Since the day was first observed on August 12, 2000, it has served as a platform for social education, mobilising the youth in politics, and managing resources to address global concerns.
