django runserver error in ubuntu

when i run django runserver commond
it giving me an Syntax error in line 17.

It’s trying to run Django under Python version 2. You need to be running Python 3.

Yes, it solved my issue

I see this error if I forget to activate my virtualenv. A lot of Ubuntu installations will come pre-installed with Python 2.7.x so if you don’t activate your virtualenv, Django will default to using the system-wide installation of Python.

Whenever I use Django I have to use python3 to run my commonds.
