|"As the world changes with unprecedented speed,
young people are proving to be invaluable partners
who can advance meaningful solutions. Youth
movements and student groups are challenging
traditional power structures and advocating a new
social contract between States and societies.
Young leaders have contributed fresh ideas, taken
proactive measures, and mobilized through social
media as never before. I applaud the millions of
young people who are protesting for rights and
participation, addressing staggering levels of youth
unemployment, raising their voices against
injustice, and advocating global action for people
and the planet."

Prepared by the United Nations Department of
Economic and Social Affairs, the World Youth Report
on Youth Civic Engagement explores young people's
participation in economic, political and community life,
responding to growing interest in, and an increased
policy focus on, youth civic engagement in recent
years among Governments, young people and
researchers. The Report provides thematic insights on
economic, political and community engagement,
coupled with expert opinion pieces so as to provide
robust and varied perspectives into youth engagement.
In offering fresh perspectives and innovative ideas on
youth engagement, the Report is intended to serve as
an impetus and tool for dialogue, policy discussion
and action between youth and government.
