Young people’s lives and politics have been transformed by successive waves of crisis: the Great Recession, the Climate Emergency, and the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The research nevertheless demonstrates how efforts to amplify youth voice have the potential to break these cycles and contribute to a more sustainable public policy.
