Every year on August 12, the UN celebrates International Youth Day, and has done so since 1999. This day aims to highlight the role of young people as real actors of change, and is an opportunity to raise awareness about issues and problems particularly affecting young people (for example, the issue of global warming).

This year, the United Nations’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs will organize a webinar on the occasion of the International Youth Day. The webinar aims to exchange innovative ideas on the subject of “green skills” for young people, in order to provide them the elements and skills needed to fight against global warming and related issues.
