International Youth Day

Posted by Peter MUIR

Last week saw the celebration of International Youth Day, a day designated by the United Nations to focus on the issues they care about most.  Take a look here at some of the activities by youth taking action around the world at the Global Youth Action Network.   Also here you will find some more stories about youth taking action around the globe – and perhaps also some inspiration for your own C&S or CAS programme.  Additionally, click here to see some ideas for activities that you could have done to get involved in this day.  Check them out and consider how you could incorporate them into your C&S or CAS programme.

One organisation is focusing on this quote by former UN general-secretary Kofi Annan as a part of their campaign to get youth involved in taking action: “You are never too young to lead.”     See their video below.
