Commentary: A World Fit for Youth


  • Jo de Berry


Young people require more than good health and educational attainment in order to make the transition to a fulfilling and productive adult life. In addition they require life skills, confidence, and the ability to explore development avenues; they will benefit from societal and cultural investments that recognize the value of and equip them with such social, emotional, and skill resources. Essentially they must be given the chance to express and act out their own agency in navigating the constraints and opportunities around them.
