International Youth Day 2023: Green Skills for Youth: Paving the Path to a Sustainable Future (A Clarion Call)

The UN Secretary-General António Guterres stated it eloquently when he said that the boundless energy, cutting-edge ideas, and priceless contributions of youngsters around the world are crucial to the survival of humanity. “Humanity depends on the boundless energy, ideas and contributions of youth everywhere. Today and every day, let’s support and stand with young people in shaping a just and sustainable world, for people and planet.” This is particularly poignant on days like International Youth Day, especially as this year’s theme is: Green Skills for Youth: Towards a Sustainable World. This year, attention is once again focused on how important young people are in guiding society toward a more sustainable future.
