Marking the International Youth Day

Marking the International Youth Day
12 August 2020 | 17:24

On August 12, the World celebrates International Youth Day. This year, the theme of International Youth Day is Youth Engagement for Global Action, aiming to highlight the ways in which the engagement of young people at the local, national and global levels is enriching national and multilateral institutions and processes, as well as draw lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics can be enhanced.

UNFPA mentioned that Young people have been frontline responders to the COVID-19 pandemic, mobilizing across the world, they are health workers, activists, innovators, and social and community workers.

Currently, there are 1.8 billion young people between the ages of 10 and 24 in the world. This is the largest youth population of all time. However, more than half of children and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 14 do not have the basic knowledge of reading and maths, despite the fact that most are in school.

This global crisis of knowledge acquisition strongly impedes the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of Agenda for Sustainable Development 2030. It was adopted by the United Nations on 25 September 2015 and establishes a global framework for poverty eradication and sustainable development by 2030, on the basis of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Moldova marks the National Youth Day on the second Sunday of November every year. In Moldova, the youth structures play an important role in engaging young people at the local and national levels.

In 2019, in the country, there were around 710,800 young people between the ages of 14-34, or around 26.9 percent from the whole population of the country.
