Today the UN World Youth Report on Youth Civic Engagement will be launched. The event will be an occasion to discuss the engagement of youth in political, economic, and community life through sport, internships and online activism.
The World Youth Report, prepared by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, explores young people’s participation in economic, political and community life, responding to growing interest in, and an increased policy focus on, youth civic engagement in recent years among Governments, young people and researchers. The Report explores young people’s participation in economic, political and community life.
