International Youth Day/Gorakhkali Puja

As part of the official outcome recommendations of the EYF, young participants stressed the importance of working towards more equitable food systems. In addition, they highlighted the need for youth to make informed decisions on food choices through increasing global education on the healthiest and most sustainable options for both individuals and the environment. Food systems include not only the basic elements of how we get food from farms to the table, but also all of the processes and infrastructure involved in feeding a population, and the negative externalities that can be generated during the process, such as air and ocean pollution as well as desertification. There is also the risk of zoonotic diseases that can result from unsustainable farming practices and the climate crisis. Population health is also key in addressing food systems challenges, especially as nutrition-related chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some forms of cancer are major contributors to the global burden of disease.

As the UN turns 76, and with only 9 years remaining to make the 2030 agenda, a reality for all, trust in public institutions is eroding. At the international level, against the backdrop of an increasingly polarized world, the international system of governance is currently undergoing a crisis of legitimacy and relevance. In particular, this crisis is rooted in the need to strengthen the capacity of the international system to act in concert and implement solutions to pressing challenges and threats (examples include some of the worst contemporary conflicts and humanitarian emergencies, such as Syria, Ukraine and Myanmar, as well as global challenges, and climate change).

This year, as in other years, International Youth Day is being celebrated all over the world by organizing various programs. International Youth Day is celebrated around the world every year to show the importance of the role of youth in the development of individuals, families, communities, nations, and the world. This day also highlights innovative ways to make youth participation more active and possible change to move the international community in a positive direction.

In Nepal too, various programs are being held and it is customary to submit memorandums and declarations to the Ministry and the Prime Minister's Office. The youth needs to be aware and diligent in taking their demands and needs to the government and stakeholders. On the other hand, for the sake of good governance, transparency, and rule of law, the vigilance of the youth is always necessary. Due to this, the role of the youth who are the carriers of change is eternal, the responsibility of the fateful change and development is on the efficient shoulders of the Nepali youth.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
