Apply for: Next Generation Brazil

What is the opportunity?

The British Council Research and Insight Team is seeking to commission Next Generation Brazil, a research that aims to understand young people’s perceptions, aspirations and attitudes in Brazil today. Furthermore, we seek a series of policy recommendations that will support

Next Generation is a research programme that gathers data to explore the needs, potential and aspirations of young people globally. The overall aim of Next Generation is defined through 3 strands:

  • Research: Understanding youth attitudes and aspirations 
  • Youth Voice: Amplifying youth voice 
  • Policy Impact: Supporting better youth policymaking 

The research seeks to analyse the conditions that support young people and allow them to reach their potential as fulfilled, productive and active citizens. Research is initiated in countries that are experiencing a period of significant change, with the purpose of ensuring that young people’s voices are heard, and their interests properly represented in decisions that will have lasting implications for their lives. The research is always completed with a series of recommendations based on supporting policy change.

This research has been conducted in countries including the UK, Colombia, Germany, Ireland/Northern Irelands, Myanmar, Sudan, South Africa, Tanzania, Turkey, and Vietnam. We look to see how one or more significant changes or periods of activity – particularly when a number of events or circumstance come together – affects young people’s view of themselves and their place in the world.
