International Youth Day takes place on Monday, August 12th 2013. This year’s theme is Youth Migration – Moving Development Forward highlighting the importance of youth migration in development – the opportunities that maximise benefits and those that minimise risks for young people.
The World Youth Report 2013 will also focus on Youth Migration and this will be launched on Monday, August 12th 2013.
NYCI, through its Intercultural and Development Education Programmes has produced a short information note on the issue of youth migration with suggestions for action, examples of how others have been exploring the issue, and links to organisations involved with migrants in Ireland.
We would be delighted to hear from you on the issue of youth migration as you have experienced it personally, as a youth worker or as a youth organisation.
The World Youth Report 2013 will also be available here following publication.
