Empowering youth means empowering individuals, families, communities and societies.

"Empowering youth means empowering individuals, families, communities and societies.  The EU is committed to this through quality education, the provision of skills and by providing better opportunities for the most vulnerable", Rupert Schlegelmilch, one of the key speakers at the OECD Global Forum on Development.

The Forum discussions addressed extremely important cross-cutting issues for the implementation of SDGs such as youth, gender empowerment, investing in rural youth and youth strategies. The discussions were informed by the findings and policy recommendations of the EU-OECD Youth Inclusion Project financed by the EU.
