9. Youth and the World

Young people's contribution to global processes of policy-making, implementation and follow-up is not a political priority in the German-speaking community.

Just because the Government doesn't regulate youth cooperation and participation at global level, that doesn't mean that young people in the German-speaking Community aren't interested in global issues. The Youth Council of the German-speaking Community (Rat der Deutschsprachigen Jugend, RDJ) releases opinion reports from time to time on issues such as Atomic Energy in 2016 (Stellungnahme zum Thema Atomenergie) or Youth for Climate in 2019 (Stellungnahme Klimamärsche).

There are also a few other associations that work on raising awareness on global issues (see following chapters).
