On 12th August, the world will be celebrating the International Youth day, under the theme “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production”.
This year’s Day is about achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It focuses on the leading role of young people in ensuring poverty eradication and achieving sustainable development through sustainable consumption and production.
With a population of over 1.8 billion youth globally, the future belongs to us.
To achieve the above then, we need to actively be involved in drives intended to fight poverty and also to engage in active production activities.
Eradicating poverty cannot be attained if we don’t actively participate. Many of us wait for handouts from the government and donors.
