Project EUROCORES

Citizens of the future: the concerns and actions of young people around current European and global issues

This study investigates the concerns of young Europeans (aged 10, 14, 17) for their personal, local, and global futures, focussing on issues such as democratic processes, poverty, unemployment, human rights, the environment and conflict. It will try to identify whether they are optimistic or pessimistic, and whether they are willing to work for change or are uncommited to social participation. It examines the extend to which they are pro-social in their engagement with others, committed to acting for a common good.
