EACEA National Policies Platform: Youthwiki


9. Youth and the World

This chapter focuses on young people’s participation in all stages of policymaking relating to global issues and to youth cooperation at the global level.

In Denmark, young people have the opportunity to engage formally with policymakers on a national and international level.

Sustainable development, green patterns of consumption, and human rights engage many young people in Denmark. NGOs and youth organisations in Denmark are the main arenas where youth participate in issues that are directly or indirectly related to global issues.
