Recap of International Youth Day Activities

The fifteenth United Nations designated youth awareness day or International Youth Day was commemorated on August 12, 2015, world over. Action/2015, together with Climate Action Network South Asia partook in the Action/2015 Youth global movement with the much celebrated #YouthPower poses.


The #YouthPower poses is just the beginning of Action/2015 South Asia’s and CANSA’s plans for International Youth Day. A workshop for youth, focusing on a range of environment and climate change issues will be organised late September that will also coincide with the United Nations General Assembly and formal adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals.


Action/2015 South Asia and CANSA have also two International Youth Day specific blog posts up on this site that focus on:
