International Youth Day, commemorated every year on August 12, provides an opportunity to reflect on the contributions of young persons around the world to their countries' democratic systems. By helping spread information about the importance of voting, participating in workshops on civic responsibility, forming organizations to advance democratic practices and casting their ballots – youth are powerful change agents in their societies.
