The theme of International Youth Day 2017 is Youth Building Peace.
Since the adoption of Security Council Resolution 2250 in 2015, there is growing recognition that as agents of change, young people are critical actors in conflict prevention and sustaining peace. International Youth Day 2017 is dedicated to celebrating young people’s contributions to conflict prevention and transformation as well as inclusion, social justice, and sustainable peace. - Taken from International Youth Day 2017, UN Website
Every day at Covenant House Vancouver we get to see just how amazing youth are and every young person has something to contribute to their community and the world at large.
