OIC Youth Day Message

OIC Youth Day Message –

Convey your message to your peers and leaders

“Youngsters of today are the Leaders of the Future.”

“Young people must be put at the heart of development and innovation and given the opportunities and tools needed to take their countries into the future” says the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum’s President Mr. Taha Ayhan.

The 3rd of September of every year marks the OIC Youth Day, where we across all the OIC member states celebrate this day with various activities and achievements that we accomplished throughout the past year with your help and participation.

For this year, we want to make it even more special by announcing “Youth Day Video Celebration/Collection”, to make it more special because now more people can join the celebration through the online channels, telling us their visions and ideas of how our youth thinks of how they’d would lead the world if they get the chance to do so.

What’s the plan?

We invite you to participate in the celebration by making a short video (not more than 1 minute ); in this video you would be telling us

1- A problem that you encounter as a young person in your community, and how would you solve it?
