As part of International Youth Day, we would like to invite you to Maribor Island, where we will be celebrating on 12 August. We have an interesting programme which we will announce in the next few days, so keep an eye on our website and Epeka Slovenia’s Facebook page. Link to the Facebook event.
Young people up to 18 years of age can buy a 90% subsidised ticket from the City of Maribor.
More about International Youth Day:
In 1999, the UN General Assembly declared 12 August as International Youth Day to give young people a day of the year to draw attention to their situation and remind them of the problems they face. This year’s motto is Safe spaces for Youth. More than 400 million young people worldwide are at risk from organised crime and armed conflict.
“Young people need safe spaces – public, civil society, physical and digital – where they can freely express their views and pursue their dreams,” urged United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. For him, peace, economic dynamism, social justice and tolerance depend on the development potential of young people.
