First Edition: 2022-2023
Youth Talks is a groundbreaking initiative that marks the first-ever global consultation inviting individuals aged between 15 and 29 to share their opinions, concerns, and aspirations regarding the future of our societies by answering open-ended questions. By analyzing the responses using advanced AI tools such as semantic and lexical analysis, Youth Talks aims to collect valuable insights without imposing ideas or biases onto young people.
Youth Talks transcends the boundaries of traditional surveys
- It is conducted on a global scale in 6 languages to guarantee inclusivity.
- It asks open-ended questions to let the youth express freely its ideas and to avoid imposing a mindset on the participants.
- It relies on the commitment of a network of ambassadors to reach out to diverse communities around the world both bridging the digital divide in some parts of the world and giving the opportunity to 2,300 ambassadors to take action and represent a cause close to their heart.
- It uses cutting-edge AI tools (NLP and generative AI) to analyze the data.
First edition : focusing the youth aspirations and education
The 1rst edition of the consultation was held from October 2022 to May 2023.
With the ambition of taking the pulse of the youth, the consultation invited the participants to share their aspirations and expectations about the future. The questions focused primarily on the future (hopes, concerns and collective challenges to address), the sacrifices needed and education.
What will become of the results?
The Youth Talks results will be used to propel the voice of the youth on the global stage, turning it into a powerful tool to guide decision-makers, inform the critical decisions made about our future and transform our societies.
Those results will nourish various types of documents adapted to address multiple target stakeholders that can help promote the youth vision further: educational institutions, companies, governments and political institutions, youth organizations, the media and the general public.
