International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is celebrated globally on 9 August. It marks the date of the inaugural session of the Working Group on Indigenous Populations in 1982. It’s a day to reflect on the challenges Indigenous peoples face all over the world and to take steps toward promoting and protecting their rights. The event recognizes and honours their achievements, and it’s also a great time to reflect on and celebrate Indigenous culture, tradition, and heritage.

This year's theme is “Indigenous Youth as Agents of Change for Self-determination”

Indigenous youth are playing an active role in exercising their right to self-determination, as their future depends on the decisions that are made today.

  • Climate Action and the Green Transition
  • Mobilizing for Justice
  • Intergenerational connections
