Youth and the world
This chapter focuses on Flemish young people’s participation in policymaking related to global issues and in youth cooperation at the global level.
Several Flemish-funded youth organisations take up the task to raise the awareness of young people about global issues such as human rights and sustainable development. On the other hand, different ministries of the Flemish Government carry out a global plan for sustainable development. Many organisations have initiated projects about sustainable development and have developed methods, instruments and campaigns targeting young people.
