11 August: International Youth Day 2017
The official commemorative event to celebrate International Youth Day 2017 will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 11 August, from 10:00am to 1:00pm on this year’s theme of “Youth Building Peace”. It will bring together youth as well as representatives of Member States and United Nations entities to explore the various ways in which young people are contributing to building and sustaining peace.
The Division for Social Policy and Development (DSPD) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) is organizing the event in collaboration with the United Nations Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development's (UN IANYD) Working Group on Youth and Peacebuilding.
[The theme of International Youth Day 2017 is Youth Building Peace]
Since the adoption of Security Council Resolution 2250 in 2015, there is growing recognition that as agents of change, young people are critical actors in conflict prevention and sustaining peace. International Youth Day 2017 is dedicated to celebrating young people’s contributions to conflict prevention and transformation as well as inclusion, social justice, and sustainable peace.
Another Security Council Resolution, Resolution 2282 (2016) recognizes that the scale and challenges of sustaining peace requires partnerships between stakeholders, including youth organizations. It also reaffirms the important role youth can play in deterring and resolving conflicts, and are key constituents in ensuring the success of both peacekeeping and peacebuilding efforts.
