August 12th is International Day of Youth, an opportunity to raise awareness of the issues facing the world’s youth. There are 1.8 billion youth aged 10 to 24 in the world today, which is the largest youth population in history. 

This year’s International Day of Youth theme is “Safe Spaces for Youth”. Easily accessible public, civic, digital, and physical spaces provide youth with opportunities for leadership, leisure, and connection, while promoting social, emotional, and cognitive development.
