No Youth Progress without Sustainability

Sustainability is one of the greatest challenges facing society, above all the youngest generations, who will bear the most devastating consequences of an existential crisis they did not create.

We can’t measure youth progress without including environmental sustainability!

Our Youth Progress Index 2021 found that no country can claim to have a model of society that is completely sustainable and safeguards young people’s future and the living conditions of future generations. 

Young people want more ambition from policymakers, to reflect the urgency of the climate crisis and to protect our wellbeing, now and in the future!
