International Youth Day 2018

Youth Star Cambodia joined International Youth Day 2018, which was held on Saturday August 11, 2018 at the Institute of Technology. It was declared as such to create awareness about cultural and legal issues surrounding today’s youth. This year the theme is “Safe Spaces for Youth”.


The event is celebrated worldwide to highlight the need of young people to come together, express themselves freely, participate in decisions that matter to them, and pursue their dreams. These spaces can include school, work, parks, youth centers, or even online platforms. While there are many types of spaces, safe spaces ensure the dignity and safety of youth. We at Youth Star Cambodia were very honored to share our perspective regarding this year’s theme and how our program has been working to create a safe space for youth in our own way.
