What is International Youth Day?

IYD

The theme of International Youth Day 2020, “Youth Engagement for Global Action” 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, as well as draw lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics can be significantly enhanced.

Artists age 10-24 from around the world are represented in an online art exhibit "This Is My 2020." In a year like no other, youth views of 2020 are represented through photographs of community, self-portraits, what matters to youth and is on her/his/their mind right now. Because youth stories, viewpoints and voices matter.
