2019 International Week of Action – Call for Partnerships

editedInternational Youth Day is held each year on the 12th of August and is an initiative that celebrates the qualities of young people and that recognises the challenges that today’s youth face. International Youth Day began in 2000 and was organised by the United Nations to celebrate the contribution that young people make in education, employment, health, conflict resolution and social justice among other sectors.
The theme of International Youth Day 2019, “Transforming Education”, highlights efforts to make education more inclusive and accessible for all youth, including efforts by youth themselves. Rooted in Goal 4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”.
Uganda Youth Network plans to partner with youth led and youth focused civil society organizations (CSOs), the National Youth Council (NYC), Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development (MGLSD), Kampala City Council Authority, UYONET members and the youth to undertake a number of activities in the run up to the International Youth Day Celebrations. Join us in this partnership, as a united front we can achieve a society that promotes inclusive education in Uganda.
