9. Youth and the World

 

Under the 2030 Agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, a set of programmes and initiatives have been developed to raise the awareness of young people about global affairs.

On one hand, within the scope of formal and non-formal education, and in response to social and economic challenges of today's world, the XXI Constitutional Government developed a new National Education Strategy for Citizenship. This Strategy includes a set of rights and duties that must be present in young people's civic training so that, in the future, youth will emphasize equality in interpersonal relationships, integration of difference, respect for human rights and appreciate a democratic citizenship.

On the other hand, there are also programmes and initiatives framed in a wide range of National Plans and Strategies in different areas, and in an inter-ministerial and intersectoral logic, which involve not only a set of diversified public actors, but also Non-Governmental Organizations.

In this latter context, stands out the publication of the National Youth Plan in accordance with the Resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 114-A/2018 4th September.
