9. Youth and the World
Empowering young people to participate in discussions on global issues is not recognized as an integral part of youth policies. Non-governmental and international organizations play an important role in advocacy and campaigning for global issues, as well as in motivating and educating young people.
This chapter provides context for youth participation at the global level and their involvement in policymaking on global issues.
The current situation in BiH shows that young people do not have the opportunity to learn about global issues and challenges through formal education, while opportunities through informal education are very scarce.
The opportunities offered to young people mainly deal with environmental issues, prevention of gender-based violence and sustainable development.
