The Largest Generation of Young People in History
The sheer size of this generation is one of its most important features. It’s the largest generation of young people in history, with more than 1 billion people under age 25 worldwide. The needs of this large population are growing as they enter adulthood and start families, but they’re not being met by governments or businesses.
Young people have a strong sense of ideals and a desire to see the world become as brilliant as they know it can be, if only given the chance. They see the world as one and wish to learn, live, and love without barriers enforced by policies and regulations. While there is still a long way to go before this becomes a reality, we can support young people by providing brilliant experiences that help them reach their full potential and empower them to shape our world.
Youth Embracing the World as One
The desire of young people to learn, live, and love without barriers is the driving force behind the global movement for gender equality. This ambition needs policies and regulations that support it, but so far there have been few opportunities for young people to engage with policymakers at a national level.
Young people are key players in shaping our future—whether through their own initiatives or working with governments on issues that affect them directly. We need to embrace their energy, understand their potential, and create a brighter future for all.
Supporting Young People Through Brilliant Experiences
We have the opportunity to support young people through brilliant experiences that are meaningful, accessible, and enjoyable. These experiences provide young people with a platform to realize their full potential and empower them to shape our world.
The Impact of the Youth on Our Future
The youth are the future. They are the ones who will shape our world and make it a better place for all of us. Let’s listen to their voices, embrace their energy, and work together to create a world that reflects their strong ideals and desire for a brilliant future.
There are many PTPI student chapters doing great things around our network. And there are chapters that work in partnership with Scouting and other local youth organizations. Find the way that works where you are, ask us for help and share your stories with us. We have a dream that our European Council team, known as the EEC, will be 100% Youth Led by the end of 2024.
Together with our student travel program, homestay, conferences and grants, we are doing all that we can to ensure the young people that connect with PTPI, are exposed to amazing experiences.
Donate to our Youth Development Conference fund
You can help us offer an opportunity, for young people to attend our European Conference, each year. The “Youth Development Conference Fund“ will be used to offer scholarships for students so that they can attend our Conferences. The scholarships cover; participation fee, homestay and a contribution to international travel expenses.
