International Youth Day

Date – 12/08/2023

Most of the population of India is from youth groups. The future of any country depends on the youth of that country because only youth can represent the country well. For the country’s development, the youth must be educated and aware. The government encourages the youth to come up with new ideas and schemes.

International Youth Day was created by the UN to help draw awareness to these issues as we strive to find solutions. It’s a day for reflection but also a day for taking action so get involved. We the NSS Wing of the Navjeevan Law College have celebrated the International Youth Day on 12 Aug 2023 at Our Institution Premises. Every year, International Youth Day centers around a particular theme that addresses crucial challenges encountered by young people. The theme for International Youth Day in 2023 is ‘Green Skills for Youth: Towards a Sustainable World’.

Around 100 NSS student volunteers were participated in the celebration. Swapnil D. Pawar Assistant professor MVP Samaj’s Law College Nashik(M.A. Political science, SET, LL.B.) and All the Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff of Navjeevan Law College was present on the auspicious occasion. Our honorable NSS programme officer Dr. Shalini Ghumre welcomed the gathering. The Assistant Prof.Navjeevan Law College,BOS(SPPU)Dr.Sameer Chavan addressed the gathering He said that this day celebrates the contributions, ideas, energy and creativity of young people to foster positive change, not only for themselves, but also for their communities and the rest of the world. This year, on International Youth Day, UN DESA is highlighting the importance of green skills in building back better towards a more sustainable future.

Accelerating the shift towards an environmentally sustainable and climate-friendly world is critical not only for responding to the global climate crisis but also for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the minds of young people across the globe, a successful transition towards a greener world depends on the development of green skills, which are “knowledge, abilities, values and attitudes needed to live in, develop and support a sustainable and resource-efficient society”.

The pursuit of a greener and more just future requires urgent action. Youth green skills are essential to a successful transition to the green economy. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), a green transition will result in the creation of 8.4million jobs for young

people by 2030. However, if current trends persist, by 2030 more than 60 percent of young people may lack the skills required to thrive in the green economy. Young people need to be well-equipped with green skills so that they can better contribute to the transition to a greener future and successfully navigate this changing environment in the world of both work and life. Alarmingly, the necessary investment in skills development has been underestimated in the context of national commitments to implement major international climate agreements. Young people want to – and need to – act as catalytic agents in building greener future. For that to happen, green skills need to be at the core of young people’s education, employment and everyday lives. This is why DESA elected to celebrate the 2023 International Youth Day under the theme “Green Skills for Youth: Towards a Sustainable World”. Really his talk on has triggered the young minds of our Navjeevan Eagle towards the development of sustainable World. The NSS volunteer Miss. Anagha Sonar proposed the vote of thanks and the event ended with national anthem.
