9. Youth and the World

Last update: 29 March 2024

One of the main targets of the National Youth Strategy 2017-2022 (Εθνική στρατηγική για τη νεολαία 2017-2022), is to reinforce the role of young people in the democratic process in Cyprus. One of its main action fields is “Youth and the world” where specific priorities are set and several topics from the global agenda are being addressed, such as the climate change, the human rights, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

There are several campaigns or initiatives taking place in Cyprus over the last years for different age groups. However, there is a need for top-level policies, initiatives and/or programmes addressed especially to young people aiming to engage and inform them about global issues that concern them and to encourage them to participate in international exchanges with other young people and relevant stakeholders.
