Ministerial dialogue 4: ASPIRATIONS, ANXIETIES AND ATTITUDES OF YOUNG PEOPLE

Young people need opportunities to build their future. We have to invest in young people if we are to address demographic change successfully. The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn this into stark relief. When young people can see that there is a future and that their career goals are reachable, they stay, build families and contribute to the societies where they live. Fulfilling the rights of young people will be of paramount concern in the decades ahead.
