We currently have the largest youth population ever, with 1.8 billion people in the world between the ages of 10-24yrs. With the ever-increasing global population this may not be surprising, but what is surprising is that, despite being in education, over half of all young children and adolescents between the ages of 6-14yrs still lack basic reading and maths skills (https://www.un.org/en/events/youthday/). Through the 2019 International Youth Day theme of ‘Transforming Education’, more than 70 activities from 30 countries have written an open letter to world leaders, demanding that we prioritise young people and their development. You can read the open letter here.
International Youth Day 2019 is working to ‘Transform Education’ which is vital in achieving Goal 4 of the Global Goals. This goal focuses on Quality Education – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Goal 4 promotes the belief that education is key to prosperity and provides countless opportunities to contribute to a progressive and healthy society. Oaktree Accountants Ltd is celebrating our team’s hard work in August by donating to empower young people.
