Today, 24th August 2017, we, at the World Assembly of Youth (WAY), celebrate the 68th year anniversary of our founding as well as appreciation of the 68 years of determined journey and dedication in serving youth worldwide.
Young people are powerful agents of change and progress when they are educated and empowered to participate in decision-making. Yet around the world, too many youth are being left behind. International Youth Day is commemorated on the 12th of August which serves as an annual celebration of the role of young women and men as essential partners in change, and an opportunity to raise awareness of challenges and problems facing the world’s youth. It is also a time to bring youth issues to the attention of the international community and celebrating the potential of youth as partners in today’s global society.
