Tanzania has made positive progress in recent years but challenges remain, perhaps the biggest one being how to capitalise on the demographic dividend. Realising the potential of young people in Tanzania will determine whether the country can make the leap towards a brighter and more prosperous future.

About Next Generation

Next Generation is a series of global British Council research focusing on the attitudes and aspirations of young people, and the policies and conditions that support them in becoming creative, fulfilled and active citizens. 

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. 

In countries where we have conducted multiple Next Generation reports, the first acts as a benchmark, with later research taking a deep dive into a given area, such as democratic engagement or experience of conflict.
