ITU 2020 Youth Engagement Survey

In February 2020 we consulted youth around the world on how ITU can engage with them as an international organization.

The youth consultation was created and led by the “Youth and Media, Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society”, Harvard University.
The findings of this survey have informed and will serve to support the implementation of the youth strategy.

  • English, French, and Spanish.

  • February 29 to April 19, 2020.

  • 1,138 participants, ages 10 to 25.

  • 58 countries (86% from the developing world)

  • Gender identification representation:

    Girls (56%) Boys (40%), around 4% self-identifying
    or preferring not to say.

Five High-Level Takeaways

2 Youth seek long-term engagement relevant to their long-term goals
3 Youth have unique perspectives to contribute and expect equal partnership
4 Global issues that impact young people’s lives are diverse, and so are their interests
