International Youth Day (IYD) is an awareness day designated by the United-Nations (UN) The first IYD was on 12 August 2000. As with other political awareness days, such as Earth Day, the
purpose of the day is to draw attention to a given set of cultural and legal issues surrounding an endangered demographic.
The theme of International Youth Day 2013 is “Youth Migration: Moving Development Forward”
Young people make up a significant share of the global number of international migrants. In 2010, there were an estimated 27 million international young migrants. While migration can often offer valuable opportunities and contribute to the
development of communities and society at large, it can also pose risks and lead to unacceptable situations, including discrimination and exploitation. The 2013 observance of International Youth Day will raise awareness of the opportunities and
risks associated with youth migration, share knowledge and information stemming from recent research and analysis on this topic, and engage young people in discussions on their migration experiences. Young people are the main factor in building a standard community so it’s good to celebrity them. Happy international to all the youth..
