Media Partnership - Beyond 2020: global youth – voices & futures
2020 has been a dramatic and challenging year. From wildfires and Covid-19, to protests for racial justice and the rise of identity politics, the future remains uncertain. Yet, young people remain positive about the future. To understand the impact on young people, and how they are responding to these dramatic events, ViacomCBS undertook a special research project: ‘Beyond 2020: Global Youth – Voices & Futures’, involving over 8,000 16- to 24-year-olds in 15 countries.
ViacomCBS and EU40, in partnership with Euractiv, are organising a digital event to present the findings of this research, bringing insights and perspectives of young people to the table, and discuss the way forward with young MEPs, EU policymakers and active citizens.
How are young people feeling about the events of 2020? What are their visions and priorities for the future? How will this manifest itself in their behavior and the choices they make? A panel of high-level speakers will share their own experiences and hopes, and discuss what needs to be done, referencing issues raised in the study: social movements, campaigning, EU projects.
Join this interesting discussion and participate in the event via the polling questions during the event and by sending questions in advance to YouthBeyond2020@viacom.com or via the event’s Q&A box during the event.
