 In the live discussion over a hundred young people from five schools – one each from Asia, Africa, Middle-east, Latin America and Europe – were connected to the UN Headquarters at New York, he added.

August 12 is being celebrated globally as International Youth Day (IYD) since 2000. It is an awareness day designated by the UN to recognize efforts of the youths in enhancing global society.

"Your generation is the largest the world has ever known. The tools at your disposal for communicating and acting are unprecedented. But so are the challenges – from growing inequalities and shrinking opportunities, to the threats of climate change and environmental degradation," Ban told them.

"Several issues and concerns around education, health, governance, livelihood, employment and science were raised by youths from around the world during the discussions," he said.
