The Commonwealth Secretariat will unveil its flagship report on global youth development on 10 August 2021.
This is the third edition of the Global Youth Development Index, which measures the state of health and wellbeing, education, employment, equality and inclusion, political participation, and security for more than 1.8 billion young people around the world.
Developed by the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Youth Development Index informs policymakers about young people’s needs and opportunities while indicating areas for success as well as where attention and investment are needed. It also acts as a data advocacy tool, highlighting the importance of gathering statistics on key youth indicators to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Government representatives, youth leaders and experts will join a special newscast, designed to unveil and analyse key findings on youth development performance in 181 countries.
The results programme will air across the Commonwealth on multiple television channels.
