IYD 2022 Toolkit Cover

Ecumenical International Youth Day 2022 Event Toolkit

Indigenous Youth and Land Rights Activism

The theme for the fourth International Youth Day commemoration and toolkit, Indigenous Peoples and Land Rights Activism, arose out of several recommendations from young people within and outside WCC networks as one of the pressing issues that young people would like to explore.

This toolkit provides background information, resources and guidelines for advocacy by young people.

The WCC programmes on Youth Engagement in the Ecumenical Movement and the Ecumenical Indigenous Peoples (IP) Network, through its IP Youth network, have collaborated on this year’s focus.

Fourth Celebration of Young Peoples’ Contribution to Church and Society

In its fourth year of celebrating the vital contribution of young people to the church and society, the World Council of Churches (WCC) continues to expand the invitation to all its member churches and ecumenical partners around the world to regularly organize an Ecumenical International Youth Day (Ecumenical IYD) celebration in local churches, national councils, and regional bodies.

The WCC provides this toolkit as a resource for the fellowship to plan and organize unique celebrations of Ecumenical IYD 2022. Below you will find a description of this year’s theme, Indigenous Peoples and Land Rights Activism, and a suggested programme format to use and adapt in your own context. A hybrid (in-person and online) celebration is planned for 30 August 2022, during the Ecumenical Youth Gathering in Karlsruhe, Germany, bringing together a variety of events on Ecumenical IYD from different parts of the world.
