The Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum joins the world in commemorating the United Nations International Youth Day. Every year on 12 August since the year 2000, the world commemorates this day to draw attention to a given set of cultural and legal issues surrounding youth. This year, the theme of International Youth Day 2019, “Transforming education”, highlights efforts to make education more relevant, equitable and inclusive for all youth, including efforts by youth themselves. Rooted in Goal 4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” – International Youth Day 2019 is an opportunity to examine how as a nation, young people and youth-led and youth-focused organizations, as well as other stakeholders, are transforming education and how these efforts are contributing to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
