Wednesday, April 3rd 
14:00 -17:00       Post-summit side event: The state of youth in today´s Society 


Are young people able to exercise their socioeconomic and political rights? Do they live in a community where they feel included and are not discriminated against? Do they have sufficient food to eat? Do they have access to housing? The Youth Progress Index is one of the first instruments developed to give the full story of what life is like for a young person today, independent of economic indicators. This interactive workshop provides an overview of the Youth Progress Index, its methodology and application in a variety of settings.
