There is no specific concept to illustrate.
A large online consultation called “Generation What?” (Génération Quoi?) was undertaken in the French-speaking Community by the public service broadcaster RTBF between May and July 2016. Altough the sample was not representative of the entire young population, the survey involved a large number of young people (8000 participants aged 18-34 years). The results suggest that young people in the French-part of Belgium are mainly worried about environment and access to employment. According to the same survey, 56 % of the young people interrogated said that they were interested to engage in a non-for-profit organisation. 26 % have already been engaged in a non-for profit organisation. 80 % were favourable to the establishment of the compulsory civil service. At the contrary, the military service does not interest young people.
