August 12 is International Youth Day, first designated by the UN General Assembly in 1999.

There are currently 1.8 billion people between the ages of 10 and 24 in the world. Because more than half of kids between 6 and 14 lack basic reading and math skills, the 2019 theme is "transforming education", aiming to make education more inclusive and accessible for all youth.
