In Cape Verde, a large percentage of the population is under the age of 18, and the future of the country is very much in the hands of its youth. Youth Day is a time when awareness campaigns against child abuse, youth addiction to drugs and alcohol, violations of human rights, and more are promoted by the nation’s young people.

There may be youth marches, youth conferences where pressing issues are discussed, literature distribution drives at beaches and marketplaces, youth sporting competitions, and a host of other events going on throughout Cape Verde on Youth Day.

Each year’s slogan will vary, but many people always get involved and try to have a positive impact for the nation’s young people and for the country’s whole future.
