9. Youth and the world
This chapter focuses on young people's participation in all stages of policy-making related to global issues and to youth cooperation at the global level. The chapter shows the general policy approach, explains the concept of sustainable development and presents the National Strategy of Education to Sustainable Development as the main strategic policy document related to education on global issues. It also highlights specific programmes and measures undertaken by public authorities. Although policy in the field of global challenges is not a key issue of youth policy in Luxembourg, the issues addressed in this chapter show that there are many initiatives and projects organised by NGOs and offered to school pupils or other interested groups.
