Global Partnership for Youth: Governance


More than 44% (330,000) young people voted for “an honest and responsive government” in the MyWorld2015 survey, making it their fourth highest priority. In consultations and meetings in the past few years, young people have expressed their expectation for a firm commitment to democracy, justice, transparency, integrity and equal representation in all governance processes, in such a way that enables youth to participate in the process of national development, including creating access to opportunities for employment, innovation and shared wealth-creation.
To get the conversation started, we're asking a simple question: What are the key challenges and opportunities to young people's participation in politics, governance institutions and decision-making?
Trends and results feed back into the United Nations discussions on our world's future development goals!
