International Youth Day with Young Local Councilors of Mongolia
Globally, the International Youth Day (IYD) – 12 August - has been celebrated since 2000. This year’s IYD theme is “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Production and Consumption”.
In June 2016, Mongolia held capital city and aimag (province) local council (Citizens’ Representatives’ Hural - CRH) elections. On the occasion of International Youth Day 2016, newly elected young local councilors shared their views on youth participation, their plan for the election term (2016-2020), and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
