ALL-YOUTH

All Youth Want To Rule Their World Research Project 2018–2023

ALL-YOUTH – All youth want to rule their world is a multidisciplinary research project which explores the capacities of young people (aged between 16 and 25) and the obstacles that hamper their engagement with society. We also explore the visions of youth regarding sustainable future, growth and well-being.

The main goal of the project is to create possibilities and to enable young people to participate in making their own communities and the society. Our key ideas for sustainable growth are responsive governance and rule of law, digital innovation and sustainable development interventions such as bioeconomy.

 

WHAT ARE WE RESEARCHING?

ALL-YOUTH – All youth want to rule their world is a multidisciplinary research project which explores the capacities of young people (aged between 16 and 25) and the obstacles that hamper their engagement with society. We also explore the visions of youth regarding sustainable future, growth and well-being.

The project consists of five subprojects:

Subproject 1: Towards Youth Equality (Consortium Director, Professor Reetta Toivanen and working group, University of Helsinki). Working group studies equality and accessibility of public spaces that are important to young people and implements student training in Harvard-style clinics.

Subproject 2: From Dreams to Reality (Professor Päivi Honkatukia and working group, University of Tampere). Working group explores young people’s perceptions of sustainable development and their visions and capacities to improve sustainable well-being in their everyday life.

Subproject 3: Digital Solutions for Digital Generation (Consortium Deputy Director, Professor Kaisa Väänänen and working group, Tampere University of Technology). Working group explores and develops, together with young people, innovative digital models and services which promote youth active citizenship, social well-being and economic growth.

Subproject 4: Resolving Legal Obstacles (Professor Jukka Viljanen and working group, University of Tampere). Working group analyses the legal obstacles which prevent youth from participating in the legislative drafting process and develops impact assessment of legislation that concerns young people.

Subproject 5: Creating Sustainable Well-Being (Professor Irmeli Mustalahti and working group, University of Eastern Finland). Working group tests the solutions created with young people and in  other subprojects and study how young people can support sustainable well-being and what is their employment potential in sustainable development, for example in bioeconomy.
