12 August 2016 – International Youth Day
ECOSOC Chamber, United Nations Headquarters, New York (10 AM – 1PM)
Join us in UN Headquarters on 12 August 2016 to commemorate International Youth Day 2016 under the theme “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production.”
The International Youth Day event will showcase the diverse ways that young people contribute to sustainable consumption and production. It will highlight how youth continue to provide new ideas and alternatives to development challenges and are active in seeking a renewed vision of consumption and production that is necessary to combat climate change, protect the environment, create decent employment opportunities and build inclusive equitable societies.
The event will further explore how their ideas, participation and efforts foster green jobs/employment, create innovative technologies, help reduce poverty and inequalities and generate goods and services that are utilized in their economies.
