Hybrid Event: Marlborough House and online

The flagship Commonwealth report provides a multi-dimensional overview of how 183 countries are meeting the needs and aspirations of young people. The YDI report ranks countries according to the level of youth development and provides indicators on 6 domains of youth development: Health and Wellbeing, Education, Employment and Opportunity, Political and Civic Participation, Equality and Inclusion and Peace and Security.

The event will feature key findings and the launch of an interactive version of the updated report. The report will be available to download online after the event.

The event will be attended by high commissioners across the Commonwealth, Commonwealth Youth Networks, Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows, Commonwealth Accredited Organisations and international development partners.

During the meeting, the online and in-person audience will hear from experts and have an opportunity to share their perspectives.
