youth report 2012 cover

2012 - Be skilled, be employed, be the change generation

As you'll learn throughout this book, young people all around the world are missing out on their right to an education because of where they live, how much money they have, or what gender they are. We now have the largest youth population that has ever existed on this planet, and our generation is being let down.

UNESCO knows what a force for change youth can be. That is why 12-young people from around the world have been asked to form an independent editorial group to create this book. For the first time in the 10-year history of the publication of the Education for All Global Monitoring Reports, the Report team has asked young people to create their own summary of one. That is what you are now reading - the voice of youth.
