International Youth Day

Today, on International Youth Day, we join the global celebration honouring the enthusiasm, initiative, and spirit that the younger generations bring to our world. This year the focus is on the green and the environmental transition, as we recognise the invaluable role our young people have to play in nurturing our planet. However, these critical green skills, essential for a sustainable future, are yet to become commonplace. As we strive towards a more sustainable world, it's time to contemplate a more inclusive approach to fostering these skills in our youth.

Green skills are essentially the abilities we all need to help preserve our environment. These include understanding how to conserve energy, recycle effectively, respect nature, and make more sustainable choices. Today's youth, the future caretakers of our world, are in a prime position to adopt and utilise these skills, now and into the future. However, the path towards wider understanding and adoption of these crucial abilities is an ongoing journey that we all need to undertake together.

In the face of this opportunity, International Youth Day gives us a moment today to reflect, learn, and act. And it begins right here, in the heart of our community, within our families. As we celebrate this day, let's start conversations about sustainable living with the children in our lives. Let's encourage them to explore the great outdoors, to understand the importance of every tree, every creature, every river. Through these simple actions and by fostering these green skills, we equip them to lead us into a greener future.
