Today is the International Youth Day. Happy International Day of Youth to all Youths, Youth serving organisations & agencies around the world.
The theme of International Youth Day 2012 is “Building a Better World: Partnering with Youth” — a global call to action to develop and engage in partnerships with and for youth.
Young people today face pressing global challenges such as high levels of unemployment, vulnerable working conditions and marginalization from decision making processes. Partnerships — with the United Nations, governments, the private sector, civil society, academia and philanthropists —– can help increase opportunities for success by leveraging comparative advantages, resources and shared interests.
