President of the General Assembly Video Message on International Youth Day 2020
11 Aug 2020 -  The President of the UN General Assembly, H.E. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande has said that the current generation of young people has responded with creativity and volunteerism on a scale never seen before during difficult times and that the 1.2 billion young people living worldwide are uniquely poised to lend a voice to those most vulnerable and help create a better future for our planet.

In a Video Message on International Youth Day 2020, the President of the General Assembly, however, said the potential for humanity to create a peaceful, prosperous future will not be reached as long as inequities and discrimination against youth remain commonplace, and young people lack opportunities to have their voices heard, calling on stakeholders to acknowledge the amazing contribution young people are making to the improvement of our world, and commit to empowering our young citizens to create change at the local, national and global levels.
