The National Anti-Poverty Commission is one with the nation in celebrating this year’s International Youth Day with the theme “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages”.

The 2022 International Youth Day will also raise awareness on certain barriers to intergenerational solidarity, notably ageism, which impacts young and old persons while having detrimental effects on society as a whole.
