In Europe and the world today, young people are still facing challenges and barriers to accessing their rights.
As young people are moving between two stages of life – childhood and adulthood – they can be particularly vulnerable to discrimination in various forms. They often encounter difficulties in accessing education, quality employment, social protection and full access to civil and political rights, limiting their potential. Although existing human rights frameworks are universal, there still remains a need for specific protection to tackle discrimination against young people and to ensure their rights are fully recognised and protected.

#SeparatedbutUnited - a message from the Board of the European Youth Forum
In times of adversity and crisis, showing that we are #SeparatedbutUnited is more important than ever. We should ensure that no one is left behind, that everyone has access to healthcare, to a quality job and decent working conditions, to a good education and a future. When it’s time to rebuild, we must not return to business as usual, resources need to be spent in a sustainable way, we need to protect the people and the planet.
