Bhubaneswar: August 12 marks Celebrating Hope for the Future or the annual celebration of International Youth Day. It is the day of awareness, recognizing youth across the globe and empowering the world’s youth to make positive contributions to their communities and nations.
In 1999, the General Assembly made the recommendation ‘World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth, then the United Nations (UN) celebrated the first-ever International Youth day on August 12, 2020. Then Subsequently, International Youth Day came to be celebrated annually.
The young generation is the Hope for the Future of a nation. Now India currently holds the largest generation of youth in history.
In a message about International Youth Day Biju Janata Dal (BJD) writes, “youth play a significant role in building a more equitable and sustainable world.” Let’s celebrate their energy and enthusiasm and encourage their participation in every field, said BJD.
Poverty has the destructive nature that often follows children out of their childhood and into their youth—many young people around the ODISHA lack basic literary, reading, and writing skills. Without opportunities for education or to learn a trade, many teenagers in poverty get involved with gangs, drugs, and other dangerous activities.
We want the Future of youth across the ODISHA to tell a different story. We want better anecdotes. And we want you to be a part of it.
BJD said, “our goal is for youth to be prepared, equipped, and able to support themselves while contributing positively to their families and communities.”
Empowerment through education can bring positive change to young people’s lives and release them from the grip of poverty, always the goal of BJD.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the world to a standstill; the youth is unabashedly representing their ideologies and beliefs for better living and societal conditions.
The UN has launched a social media campaign, #31DaysOfYouth, which celebrates young people throughout August following the International Youth Day.
