International Youth Day 2013

Today marks International Youth Day (IYD). The theme of this year’s commemoration is Youth Migration : Moving Development Forward. Young people represent a significant proportion of the people who move around the world. In 2010 there were 27 million international migrants aged 15-24 globally.

The situation of migrant youth will be discussed and addressed in a variety of fora today. To find out more about IYD and what may be happening in your community, please see
