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. 

The British Council is interested in understanding the aspirations and opinions of young people in Kazakhstan and is commissioning Next Generation Kazakhstan, as part of the Next Generation Programme. 

Outputs and deadlines 

We anticipate the final outputs to broadly include: Datasets; A final report in English; An executive summary; A slide deck of key findings; A number of stakeholder engagement activities as part of the research and dissemination process.
