Join us in UN Headquarters on 12 August 2015 to commemorate International Youth Day under the theme Youth Civic Engagement.

About the Youth Day Event:

The event, which will consist of two inter-active panels, will showcase inspiring ways in which young people engage in civic, political and social spheres and will explore how the issue of youth civic engagement is an enabler for an enhanced and inclusive participation of young women and men in decision-making and public life. The event will bring together young people, youth organizations, Member State representatives, civil society, media and United Nations entities to discuss the issue of youth civic engagement in particular looking at new and emerging issues and approaches to social and political engagement in different parts of the world.
