The commemoration of this year’s International Youth Day will be on Wednesday 12th August, 2020, under the theme “Youth Engagement for Global Action”. ActionAid International Uganda and Platform for Youth Inclusion in Politics will be hosting several youth parliament sessions in the different regions of Uganda to capture the young people’s voices on issues that affect them, but also give them an opportunity to influence the National processes. They have chosen to find the youth in their localities as opposed to one big national gathering due to the Government regulations that have been put in place to control the spread of COVID-19. The sessions will be conducted as follows:

i) Regional Youth Parliament Session in Mbarara that shall be conducted on Monday 10th August, 2020 at 9:30am at Oxford Hotel. It will be presided over by the Mbarara City Speaker.
