NEW YORK, 12th August, 2017 (WAM) -- To mark the International Youth Day, marked annually on 12 August, the United Nations kicked off a commemorative event at its New York Headquarters with a message from Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who underscored his commitment to young people.

"I'm truly happy to address you on International Youth Day," the Secretary-General said a video message. "As Secretary-General of the United Nations, I am committed to the empowerment and inclusion of every young person around the world," he added.

"In this spirit, I have appointed an impressive new Youth Envoy," he said, introducing 26-year-old Jayathma Wickramanayake of Sri Lanka as the youngest and "one of the most important" members of his team.

"Governments must work with young people to successfully achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Empowered young men and women can play a critical role in preventing conflicts and ensuring sustainable peace," continued Mr. Guterres.

After the Youth Envoy invited everyone to join in mobilizing young people, the Secretary-General said, "Together, we can create a peaceful world for generations to come."

Against the backdrop that many of the world's 1.2 billion young people are affected by the hardship of conflict and war, the 2017 edition of the International Day is being celebrated under the theme 'Youth Building Peace.

Considering matters of youth, peace and security from a social developmental perspective, this year, the Day recognises that more and more societies around the world are recognising the role of youth as agents of change and critical actors in preventing conflict and building peace.
