A message from International Youth Day 2016

“Youth face many challenges, including poverty, conflicts and unemployment. But young people are not simply accepting this as their fate. They are rising up to challenge power structures, speaking out for justice and human rights, and advocating global action for people and the planet. As we mark this Day on the theme of civic engagement, I stand with these young activists. The sustainable development goals are for you – and they will only be achieved with you.”

– Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General
