The United Nations International Youth Day (IYD) gives an opportunity to celebrate young peoples’ voices, actions and initiatives, as well as their meaningful, universal and equitable engagement. The youths constitute over 40% of world population. This indicates that they play a pivotal role in the direction of socio economic growth, politics and development of any nation.
In 2020, IYD’s event seeks to highlight the ways in which the engagement of young people at the local, national and global levels is enriching national and multilateral institutions and processes. Conversations will thrive on how their representation and engagement in politics and governance can be significantly enhanced.
In the commemoration of the UN International Youth Day, African Changemakers Nigeria Chapter is organising an engaging chat session with youths across Africa.
