The International Youth Day is celebrated on January 12, every year in India to honour the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, one of India's greatest leaders and believers of youth power. On this day, governments and citizens across the world come together to recognise and bring attention to the problems faced by the youth.
In 1999, the United Nations decided to commemorate International Youth Day every year on August 12. It was based on a recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth in Lisbon to the UN General Assembly.
Youth Day is celebrated through various awareness campaigns, community concerts, and events to bring to notice the socio-economic and socio-political issues that the youth in every nation face.
