June in Review & International Youth Day : Creating a World for All Ages !

International Youth Day 2022

"On this important day, let’s join hands across generations to break down barriers, and work as one to achieve a more equitable, just and inclusive world for all people."

António Guterres, UN Secretary-General

International Youth Day is celebrated annually on 12 August to bring youth issues to the attention of the international community and to celebrate the potential of youth as active partners in the global society. 

International Youth Day 2022

  • Theme 2022:

"Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages."

The objective of International Youth Day 2022 is to amplify the message that action is needed across all generations to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and leave no one behind. 

It will also raise awareness on certain barriers to intergenerational solidarity, notably ageism, which impacts young and old persons, while having detrimental effects on society as a whole.

Solidarity across generations is key for sustainable development. As we navigate the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially important to recognize and address these age-related barriers to "build back better" in a manner that leverages all generations’ strengths and knowledge.

Did you know?

  • Half of the people on our planet are 30 or younger, and this is expected to reach 57% by the end of 2030.
  • Survey shows that 67% of people believe in a better future, with 15 to 17 year-olds being the most optimistic about this.
  • The majority of people agree that the age balance in politics is wrong. More than two thirds (69%) of people across all age groups agree that more opportunities for younger people to have a say in policy development/change would make political systems better.
  • Globally, only 2.6% of parliamentarians are under 30 years old, and less than 1% of these young MPs are women.

Youth all over the world, be part of the celebrations Creating a World for All Generations by organizing your own event or activity! You can organize an event to celebrate International Youth Day in your community, school, youth club, or workplace.

Are your school or youth group celebrating #YouthDay? Planning a special activity?

Think about what you can do in you community and how you can effectively spread the message. Make it fun and relatable and use all your channels to spread the message. Think Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, university newsletters, local newspapers or radio stations.

By the way, I'm here to share with you the Review of June.

And now here the posts of June 2022: 

Some of my usual readers are in Summer holiday. However in some states of the United States, teachers and students are already back to school the 1st August.

Wherever you are back to school or still on holidays like the most of European countries, I hope that you're having a wonderful and safe time. 

I'll be back posting the normal roundup next week.
