International Youth Day
International Youth Day is observed on August 12 across the world to recognise and create awareness about the problems faced by the youth. It came into existence as per the recommendations of the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth.
The annual theme for the International Youth Day is decided by the United Nations. The theme for 2021 is “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health”. It gives emphasis on the importance of inclusive support required for the youth to play their part in restoring and protecting life while integrating biodiversity in the transformation of food systems.
