Capiznon youth join International Youth Day

Celebrated annually every August 12 to emphasize the importance of youth engagement to global and societal issues, Capiz Youth Development Office (CYDO) facilitated various activities with the different school-based and youth organizations across the province in the month-long celebration of International Youth Day with the theme, “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health.”

IYD 2021 kicked off with the “Adlaw sang Pamatan-on,” a local celebration led by the CYDO followed by “Diskurso: A Talk on Food Security and Human Health amidst the Pandemic” by the Borres Youth Leadership Institute (BYLI).
