International Youth Day 2020, August 12th, “Youth Engagement for Global Action.”

As Papua New Guinea ventures forward to become a greater influencer in the global community, the youth of PNG become even more present and relevant to our nation’s future.

“The youth of PNG have a greater voice to ask the important questions of our leaders today, so they have the opportunity to build a greater tomorrow. Our youth are being exposed to so much more than 20 years ago. They have access to information via so many sources that there is nothing they can’t learn, see, experience, or strive to become,” comments Sir Brian Bell Foundation CEO, Ms. Bronwyn Wright.

“We need to ensure we create a future for our youth. We need to leave them a positive legacy so they can continue to build futures for their children. Our actions today in celebrating the youth around the world and PNG, ensures we take a moment to realise just how important their journeys of education and self-discovery are going to be to create a positive PNG over the next 50 years.”

“Let’s listen to their ideas, let us encourage their development, let us be supportive when they get it wrong, but overall let’s celebrate our youth in a meaningful way and show them we are 110% behind them,” concluded Sir Brian Bell Foundation CEO, Ms. Bronwyn Wright.

United Nations:
International Youth Day gives an opportunity to celebrate and mainstream young peoples’ voices, actions, and initiatives, as well as their meaningful, universal, and equitable engagement. The commemoration will take the form of a podcast-style discussion that is hosted by youth for youth, together with independently organized commemorations around the world that recognize the importance of youth participation in political, economic, and social life and processes. The theme of International Youth Day 2020, “Youth Engagement for Global Action” seeks to highlight the ways in which the engagement of young people at the local, national and global levels is enriching national and multilateral institutions and processes, as well as draw lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics can be significantly enhanced. At the international level, against the backdrop of an increasingly polarized world, the international system of governance is currently undergoing a crisis of legitimacy and relevance. In particular, this crisis is rooted in the need to strengthen the capacity of the international system to act in concert and implement solutions to pressing challenges and threats. Enabling the engagement of youth in formal political mechanisms does increase the fairness of political processes by reducing democratic deficits, contributes to better and more sustainable policies, and also has symbolic importance that can further contribute to restoring trust in public institutions, especially among youth. Moreover, the vast majority of challenges humanity currently faces, such as the COVID outbreak and climate change, require concerted global action and the meaningful engagement and participation of young people to be addressed effectively. This year’s IYD seeks to put the spotlight on youth engagement through the following three interconnected streams: engagement at the local/community level, engagement at the national level (formulation of laws, policies, and their implementation); and engagement at the global level.

Youth Responses to Covid-19
Covid-19 affects all segments of the population, with young people playing a key role in the management of this outbreak and the recovery following the outbreak. Though much is still unknown on how the disease affects young people, governments are mandated in the World Programme of Action for Youth (WPAY) to ensure their services meet the needs of young people. In these circumstances, it is important to ensure that youth are heard alongside other community and patient voices in the rollout of health and non-health interventions in response. Building up the capacity of youth to be able to make their own decisions on health and to take responsibility for health is also a key element. In this context, health education, public health promotion, and evidence-based information are critical in combating the spread and effects of COVID-19, especially to challenge the spread of disinformation online. The role of governments, as well as youth organizations and community groups, will be essential to ensure that trustworthy public health information is disseminated. Young people themselves are also utilizing online technologies to spread public health information in engaging ways such as videos to promote effective handwashing or explain how social distancing can save lives. Young innovators are already responding to the virus through social impact innovation. Around the world, a number of initiatives are being developed to leverage young people’s efforts to generate and deliver support to at-risk populations or populations affected by the pandemic. Whilst most of these initiatives are on a voluntary basis (e.g., young people offering to shop for and deliver food to elders or at-risk people), they can also take the shape of social enterprises.

Quick facts:
- The economic impact of COVID-19 is set to make the job market more challenging for youth. The ILO reports that in the first quarter of 2020, about 5.4% of global working hours, that is equivalent to 155 million full-time jobs, were lost relative to the fourth quarter of 2019.
- Recent estimates suggest that 600 million jobs would have to be created over the next 15 years to meet youth employment needs.
- The proportion of young people not in employment, education or training (the youth NEET rate) has remained stubbornly high over the past 15 years and now stands at 30% for young women and 13% for young men worldwide.
