9. Youth and the World

Human rights, sustainable development and green patterns of consumption continue to be great challenges both at national and global level. Exploring options and alternative strategies engages many young Swedes. 

Empowering young people to be able to participate in the society is one of the main goals for the Government’s youth policy. The main strategy to support young people's participation, both at national and global level, is to offer upper secundary education for all young people and financial support in form of government grants to youth CSOs.
