International Youth Day

12 August, 2021

International Youth Day is to celebrate and mainstream young peoples’ voices, actions and initiatives, as well as their meaningful, universal and equitable engagement. It recognises the importance of youth participation in political, economic and social life and processes. Globally, here are 1.2 billion people aged 15 to 24 years, accounting for 16 per cent of the global population. By 2030 — the target year for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that make up the 2030 Agenda — the youth of today will be adults and the number of new youth will be nearly 1.3 billion. Take a look at the 2020 Youth Social Entrepreneurship and the 2030 Agenda for recommendations and suggestions on how tailored entrepreneurship ecosystems can (and should) be established to help young social entrepreneurs overcome challenges and make an impact.
