There are currently 1.2 billion youth in the world, the largest number of youth ever to have existed. The majority of these youth live in developing countries where most face daunting challenges, living in poor economic, social and environmental conditions, with limited access to education, training and employment. Yet, even facing these challenges, youth are recognized and act as agents for positive change globally, whether it be as the drivers of economic advancement, or the instigators of democratic reform. This report is an attempt to take on this challenge of creating an environment for youth leaders of today, not just tomorrow.
