Different countries celebrate youth day on different dates based on certain event or occasion in the past which has significant event to the country.

As we commemorate Youth Day in a week's time, here is an inspirational video 

Title: "The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes."

Context of the video:
The girl in the video, Severn Cullis-Suzuki, daughter of David Suzuki, addresses the very first U.N. Conference on Climate Change in Rio. She is a 12-year old girl from Canada traveled to Brazil and spoke to the United Nations Earth Summit to speak the truth with such power and grace that she silenced the world. She called on grownups to follow the same rules we teach our children. She defined the role of the climate negotiators then and today her words ring truer than when she spoke them. Her speech has been heard by millions.

Here she is returning to Rio again in 2012. She explains from a new perspective why it is that she believes humanity will act to change our future. If you are interested in watching what she has to say 20 years after her speech as a 12 year old, click this link for the video.
