Youth Perspectives and Challenges in a Globalized World Tanya Rebolledo Branski CSO Spring Meetings Friday, April 15 th 12h30-14h00 World Bank MC C1-100
Perspectives Global citizens? Generation X:1959-1981 Generation Y:1982-1992 Generation Z: early 1990s and the early 2000s More possibilities! = More challenges?
A young person is a young person is a young person…
4 Main concerns of global youth Governance Security Education Job opportunities
Challenges: Social Opportunity and Resource Inequality (ex: access to ICT’s) Better connected but less communicated? Insecurity/ increasing violence and regional conflicts
Challenges: Economic Unemployment (50 million unemployed people in 2009, OIT) Youth are 3 times more likely than adults to be unemployed and represent 24,7% of the population in a working age (40,2% of total unemployed people) Professional opportunities Sustainable development (environment)
Challenges: Political End of nationalism? From a passive citizenship to an active participation (democratic governance) Accountability
Challenges: Educational / Cultural Extension of studies and “youth” Migration (de-culturization, racism) Family structure (marriage…) New role of women Less religious but more spiritual Continuous/permanent learning
Conclusions Global youth: all in the same boat Agents of social transformation (energy) Edgar Morin: “le Grand Rendez-Vous du Donner/Recevoir” What can IMF and WB do? Subjects that matter (incidence in youth’s quotidian life) Look at unknown angles (IMF and WB’ peace mandate) Promote inclusion of youth references in official documents (ex: IYY, more linkages)
