Meaningful Youth Engagement: Sharing, Power, Advancing Progress, Driving Change

Did you know that over half of the world's population is under the age of 30? They represent the largest youth population in history. Young people hold a very unique position where they have the ability to disrupt power dynamics. Until now, young people have often been excluded from political processes, economic and educational opportunities. However, promoting meaningful youth engagement can serve as a key force against exclusion. Research has shown that young people have the ability and do drive positive social change, which in turn has a significant ripple effect that fuel progress on many levels, in any context. As highlighted in the report, "when young people are engaged in meaningful and authentic ways, they share the power and the responsibility for success."
