The 86th Youth Pledge Commemoration this year carries the theme " Build Advanced and Sustainable Youth Solidity ". The theme conveys the message that we are trying to enable young people to play their role optimally as the glue of national unity in national development.

The Mental Revolution proclaimed by President Ir. Joko Widodo is very relevant in realizing advanced youth. The characteristics of advanced youth are youth with character, capacity and competitiveness. Advanced youth are youth who have high innovation and creativity capabilities, who are able to overcome various problems they face and have competence so that they can survive and excel in facing global competition.
