Youth interest in global issues

Youth in Action is a non-governmental organization in Iceland which gives young people the opportunity to impact their environment both domestically and on the global scale. Among international projects they endorse are Young People’s Initiative, which offers people aged 15 – 30 in two countries or more to take their idea further and put it into practice, and Innovation in Youth Work, which helps fund large-scale, international cooperative projects on innovation in the field of youth work. Furthermore, Youth in Action also gives young people the opportunity to have a dialogue with government officials. Such projects can be both on the national and international level.

No surveys or studies were found which can help shed further light on young people’s participation in international cooperation.
