Today marks the start of the International Year of Youth. Adopted by a UN General Assembly resolution, the IYY is intended to generate youth participation and development at local, national and global levels.
From the IYY brochure:
“Young people are not merely passive beneficiaries but effective agents of change. Dedicated, enthusiastic and creative, youth have been contributing to development by addressing society’s most challenging issues”
We think it’s going to be a good year!
