International Year of Youth begins


UN Year of Youth logoTomorrow is a very special day for us and our members, and we hope you find a way to celebrate this auspicious new year – below is a word from our Artistic Director Phil Thomson

This year’s International Youth Day is a particularly important day for youth around the world as this “Youth Day” is also the beginning of the International Year of Youth, as proclaimed by the United Nations.

In line with the theme for the International Year, the theme for this year’s International Youth Day is“Dialogue and Mutual Understanding”. The choice of theme reflects the General Assembly’s appreciation of the value of dialogue among youth from different cultures as well as among different generations.

WAYTCo prides itself on its dialogue with young people, and as a vehicle for dialogue from young people to the wider community.  Please celebrate on Thursday, and then use the rest of the year to create ways that youth dialogue can make a positive change in our crazy world.  WAYTCo stands ready to help you bring your dreams to reality!
