With a record breaking number of over 3 billion young people below the age of 30 years globally, the situation of young people at present is overwhelming. In fact, the youth today forms almost half of the occupants of the globe that has the potential to deliver unmatched contributions towards the wellbeing of the society.
To celebrate this unrivaled involvement of the youth, the United Nations together with other world organizations initiated the celebration of ‘International Youth Day‘. The International Youth day is celebrated on August 12 every year. The day was first celebrated in the year 1999 with the passing of a resolution by the UN General Assembly. The day aims to encourage ways to make the youth contribute actively in the positive growth of the society.
In this blog, let us dig deep into the concept of International Youth Day and how the health of the youth is associated with the growth of the society.
Health is the pivotal thing that one requires to stay happy, and a healthy person can serve as an asset to society. Similarly, a healthy and fit youth can contribute well with complete dedication towards the betterment of humanity. Thus, despite the disturbances across the globe, a young person who is at the best of his/her physical self, can aid towards transforming the world in a better way. On the other hand, if the young generation falls into the trap of unhealthy habits, which leads to their poor health, it acts as a barrier in their progress and the progress of mankind.
Thus, the youth today should abstain from unhealthy habits like drinking alcohol, smoking, consuming narcotics and also not doing any physical activity etc. These habits not just cause damage to the health of one individual but can put the entire generation under jeopardy.
Hence, it is important to promote healthy ways of life and take precautions to prevent ill-health so that the future generation stays secure. Moreover, habits that are formed at a young age goes a long way to build an entire life. And it is a fact that the young generation is the backbone of a nation. If the youth is healthy, then only we can think of bringing transformation in the society. So, this International Youth Day 2023, let us Pledge to Stay Fit and Healthy.
