International Youth Day is celebrated on August 12 each year to recognise efforts of the world’s youth in enhancing global society. It also aims to promote ways to engage them in becoming more actively involved in making positive contribution to young people all over the world.

Every year the African Centre for Media & Information Literacy (AFRICMIL), a pan-African centre dedicated to media and information training, research, and advocacy, holds a series of activities, one of which is a public lecture, in observance of the International Youth Day.
