2016 International Youth Day


Friday 12th August is International Youth Day 2016.

This year’s Day is about achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The theme of the 2016 International Youth Day is The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production.


Young people can tell the world how they are shaping a more sustainable future and win a trip to the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech, Morocco in November by entering the second annual Global Youth Video Competition on Climate Change.

The deadline for entries to the competition is 30 August 2016, with people between the ages of 18 and 30 eligible to participate.
