  1. Main concepts
  2. Youth interest in global issues

Main concepts

There is no official definition of what counts as a global issue, or country specific concepts related to youth participation in, and contribution to, policy-making and youth cooperation at global level. 

Youth interest in global issues

There are no national surveys documenting general trends and/or challenges related to young people’s interest or participation in global issues and policy decision making.

NGO’s and youth organizations in Norway are the main arenas where youth engage with global issues such as human rights, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and environmental activism.
