International Day of the World’s Indigenous People

There is an approximate number of 370 million indigenous people in the world, they can be found in 90 countries. The indigenous population makes up less than 5 percent of the global population, but make up 15 percent of the world’s poorest. They speak majority of the world’s languages and have formed 5,000 different cultures. Indigenous people have introduced the rest of the world to unique cultures and methods of relating to people and the natural world. They have maintained socially and politically unique characteristics that stand out from those of dominant societies. Despite cultural differences, indigenous peoples from around the globe are battling for rights and fairness in their respective societies.International Day of the World’s Indigenous People seeks to recognize their identities and advocate for their right to land and national resource ownership. Indigenous peoples are among the most disadvantaged groups of people in the world. The United Nations is making efforts to now ensure that special measures are taken to protect their rights and maintain their cultural practices.Due to losing much of their land and resources to development, a large number of indigenous people relocate to urban areas in search of a better life. They have also been recorded to move to different countries in order to escape violence and mistreatment from their previous homes. Despite the misconception that indigenous peoples live only in rural areas, many now call urban areas home., In addition, indigenous migrants face a multitude of challenges, which include a lack of access to public services and varying forms of discrimination.

Global Impact for Migration

The global impact for migration will be the first intergovernmental negotiated agreement developed under the United Nations to cover all aspects of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive way. As seen in the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, which was first introduced September 2016, the United Nations General Assembly developed a global compact for safe, organized and frequent migration. The steps to birth this global compact for migration began in April of 2017. The General Assembly will then hold an intergovernmental conference discussing international migration in 2018 with the goal of implementing the global compact. The global compact is an important component in improving the governance on migration, addressing the challenges faced in regards to migration, and strengthening the contribution of migrants and migration towards sustainable development.

World Youth Skills Day

Young people are typically three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and continuously offered lower quality and lower paying jobs. This heightens labor market inequalities, and puts a strain on those transitioning from school into the workforce. In addition, there are existing inequalities between men and women, and this unfortunate trend is mirrored in the younger generation. Education and training are key components of success in the labor market. Unfortunately, many do not have access to education and existing systems are failing to address the learning needs of many young people. Surveys of learning outcomes and skills show findings that a large number of youth have low levels of achievement in basic literacy and numeracy. In order to raise awareness on the importance of investing in youth skills development, the United Nations General Assembly decided to designate July 15th as World Youth Skills Day.
