International Youth Day

Supported by the US Embassy



Since the celebration of International Youth Day started in 2015, hosted in Apia, Upolu Island, in 2016 the Samoa National Youth Council will conduct a two day event to engage youth in Savaii to create innovative artistic products that have an element of added value to reflect the theme “The road to 2030: Eradicating poverty and achieving sustainable production or consumption”.
The overall objectives include:

  1. Increased skills of youth in entrepreneurship and enhanced understanding on small business initiatives
  2. Increased awareness and advocacy of the cultural and creative industries
  3. Strengthened engagement between youth and parents towards peaceful conflict resolution
  4. Community engagement on supporting youth initiatives.


Day 1 of the Event includes workshops facilitated by local experts (youth entrepreneurs or otherwise) which will reflect its theme through the creation of mini workshops in 3 key areas of entrepreneurship i.e. the art of canning, simple nutrition in the home and adding value to my creations. It will include sessions between the registered youths and parents to mentor on the importance of investing in the chosen careers of youth, how to support youth into careers and most importantly educating the mindset of the youth on hard work, good work ethics and so forth.

Day 2 of this Event will feature live demonstrations of the artistic element of the youth participants in the workshop and further, SNYC will engage its members in setting up a farmer’s market and food and other stalls to provide food for the public and visitors.
