Promising: Young People’s Opportunities and Obstacles in 2021

Abstract of Exploratory study by the Council’s Youth Platform. This study shows that in many respects the position of young people has not improved over the past two years, in some cases even becoming worse.

That applies in particular to certain groups of young people, such as those whose parents are from a less advantaged socio-economic background, those with a chronic disorder, or those with non-Western immigrant origins. Not enough has been done in recent years to address the problems facing young people. It is important that those problems are not only recognised but also that something is done about them quickly, and that the basics for young people are set right.
The main findings from the study’s sections on learning, working, housing, forming a family, and climate will be discussed.
