International Youth Day is observed on August 12 every year. The United Nations had in 1999 designated August 12 as International Youth Day. The first International Youth Day was celebrated on August 12, 2000.
Established on the recommendation of the World Conference of Ministers, International Youth Day provides an opportunity to recognise young talents and aims at coming up with solutions for the issues faced by the youth.
