Next Generation Italy explores the attitudes, aspirations and needs of young people across the country. It explores their views on education, skills and employment, the opportunities available to them, their interaction with family, friends and community, their values, and how they view their role, and that of Italy, in Europe and the wider world.

About Next Generation

Next Generation is a global research programme 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 projects examine young people’s views around education, employment and lifestyle, as well as uncovering their hopes and fears for their country, their degree of international engagement and views on the wider world, and the values and beliefs that affect their lives.
