August 12th is the International Youth Day and this year's theme is "Youth Building Peace". With the adoption of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2250 in 2015, young men and women were further recognized as critical actors in resolving local, national, and international conflicts, preventing extremism, and are major drivers of achieving lasting peace worldwide.
