It also aims to promote ways to engage youth in becoming more actively involved in making positive contributions to their communities.
More than ever, the world has turned to innovators delivering solutions to solve society’s greatest problems, removing critical barriers to facilitate innovative approaches and power our livelihood. 2020 started amid uncertainties for young people in Nigeria and may likely end with more uncertainties as the world battles COVID-19 and getting ready for an apparent recession; Nigeria needs social innovators, change-makers, and pioneers who are creating new sustainable models and making an impact in Nigeria.

The potential of young people is the driving force of our collective prosperity. This is particularly relevant to Africa, whose population is projected to represent over 40 percent of the world’s young people… there is a growing consensus that Africa’s youthfulness will continue to grow for the next 50 years while the other continents are aging as noted by Abdalla Hamdok ( UNECA / South Sudan President).

This year, the International 2020 is focused on “Youth Engagement for Global Action” and explores mediums to engage youth from the local level to the global level. There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be a serious challenge but it has also presented an opportunity, notably for several young people in Nigeria and Africa develop innovative solutions; adopt creative mechanism and rebranded to meet the numerous needs of their peers which in these situations have helped place their communities ahead of the curve, improving processes and providing lifesaving systems.

In commemoration of the International 2020, the Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria, Youth Action Movement (YAM) has joined other youth and young people across the world to commemorate the day through different activities such as the distribution of face masks, HIV counseling and testing, STI screening & Treatment, and a sensitization program.
