Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1999, International Youth Day takes place every year on August 12. This year’s theme is “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Production and Consumption”, and seeks to bring together the voices of international youth working towards the 2030 Agenda.
As we drive down the road to 2030, what is a sign you’d like to see? Create a road sign you would like to see on the Road to 2030 and/or talk about a Global Goal that is important to you to achieve by 2030. Post on social media using the hashtags #Youth2030 and #GenUN.
