Opportunities for Youth and Human Development


This year’s report is devoted to young people, to the problems they face and to their opportunities, and to their position in society as a social group. Both problems and opportunities are understood from a human development standpoint , beyond tangible material opportunities or opportunities related to livelihoods. Apart from education, employment and security, these include societal and spiritual issues for young people and opportunities to share important societal values with other generations, to feel themselves a part of society so that they can govern principles of solidarity and respect not only material but also the spiritual needs of all generations.
