World Youth Report 2017

The transition from youth to adulthood marks a key period characterized by greater economic independence, political involvement, and participation in community life. Such engagement not only impacts the individual and community, but can act as an enabling force for young women and men’s involvement in the development and formulation of youth-related policies. The World Youth Report on Youth Civic engagement provides an interface between global policies in the economic, social and environmental spheres and national action engagement, as well as providing thematic insights on economic, political and community engagement, coupled with expert opinion pieces so as to provide robust and varied perspectives into youth engagement.
