Youth Festival – U.N. International Youth Day 2017

Every year, UN comes out with a theme to celebrate this day. Basically, these themes make the youth think about their responsibility of helping with the challenges our society face small or big, to make our world a better place. This year, the theme for International Youth day is “Youth Building Peace”. What better way is there to build peace than through music. Music brings all different kinds of people from different walks of life together, and can become a unifying force in today’s turbulent times.
