Celebrate International Youth Day 2017

Fri, Aug 11th, 2017

Saturday 12 August is United Nations International Youth Day and the theme is ‘Youth Building Peace’. Events all over the world will celebrate young people’s contribution to conflict prevention and transformation as well as inclusion, social justice, and sustainable peace.

On our blog, youth worker Jason Dillon from Voluntary Service International explores how youth volunteering can be a path for young people to achieve independence and work toward social change in Youth Volunteering: Building a Path to Peace. We also look at how to get an Erasmus+ KA1 Youth Exchange going – a project type that offers young people a space to explore themes like these.

Follow the hashtags #YouthDay and #Youth4Peace on social media for updates, and share your events with us on Twitter or Facebook!
