International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, 9 August 2023


International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, is celebrated globally, Wednesday 9 August 2023.


Violations of the rights of the world's Indigenous Peoples have become a persistent problem, sometimes because of a historical burden from their colonization backgrounds and others because of the contrast with a constantly changing society.


In response to this problem, let’s remember every August 9 that Indigenous Peoples have the right to make their own decisions and carry them out meaningfully and culturally appropriate to them.


This year’s theme is: Indigenous Youth as Agents of Change for Self-determination.


  • Climate Action and the Green Transition

  • Mobilizing for Justice

  • Intergenerational connections
