2019 International Youth Day

Under the theme “Transforming education”, the 2019 International Youth Day will be commemorated in Akuapem Mampong by the Government of Ghana and UNFPA. Under the Auspices of the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana HE Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia, the event will be used to highlight efforts to make education more relevant, equitable and inclusive for all youth, including efforts by youth themselves.

To reaffirm our commitment to helping young people realize their full potential in life, UNFPA will introduce the newly unveiled youth strategy, My Body, My Life, My World!  which places their needs, aspirations and ideals at the core of the Fund’s work to support achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the ICPD agenda by 2030.

Join us on the march to Nairobi! Together, we can finally make rights and choices a reality for all young people.
