International Youth Day is an intentional and proactive way in which the world acknowledges and celebrates the key contributions of young people in both church and society. The WCC-led event this year with the theme on climate justice, provides a common platform for young people from our member churches and ecumenical partners to take ownership of their space in the ecumenical movement.
A toolkit will be launched and shared as a starting point for member churches and ecumenical partners to explore the theme on climate justice. The hope is that it will spark deeper, more intentional and engaging intergenerational conversations towards our collective active response in addressing climate change as people of faith.
For 2021, young people from member churches and ecumenical partners will take over WCC’s social media to showcase the intersectionality of the climate change theme.
The WCC is inviting young people to participate and submit materials for a “youthtakeover” to the 12 August programme, including ideas, video greetings, photos, songs, and dances, to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 31 July.
The Ecumenical International Youth Day will be an online event on 12th August and details to join the event online will be shared closer to the date.
The event will be from 11:00AM-4:00PM CET
