International Youth Day 2022

The 1st International Youth Day was celebrated in 1999.

International Youth Day is celebrated every year on August 12 to raise awareness about cultural and legal issues related to the youth.

International Youth Day's 2022 theme is "Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages."

President Muhammadu Buhari established National Youth Day in 2020 to find solutions to the issues that affect young people.

Pope John Paul II was inspired to establish World Youth Day in 1986 by the church's Youth Jubilee (1984)

The day is globally recognised by UN and multiple dignitaries of the world unite to mark the day.
