Main concepts

Young people's contribution to global processes of policy-making, implementation and follow-up is not a political priority in the German-speaking Community. Therefore, there is no specific governmental strategy paper related to global issues and how these can be addressed by young people.

Youth interest in global issues

The Youth Council of the German-speaking Community (RDJ, Rat der Deutschsprachigen Jugend)

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 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).
