According to the United Nations definition, youth are people between the ages of 15 and 24. This makes up approximately 18% of the world population – making the present generation of youth the largest ever in history. While there are about 1.2 billion young people living in the world today, there will be 72 million more youth by 2025. The UN definition of youth also includes children between the ages of 15 to 18 as defined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).The definition and nuances of the term ‘youth’ often vary from country to country, depending on sociology-cultural, institutional, economic and political factors. The Government of Nepal defines youth as people aged 16-40 years of age. Nevertheless, a number of youth organizations in Nepal use the UN definition or define youth as people aged 15-29 or 15-35. It is youth who encounter the uncertainties generated by economic and cultural globalization. The transition to adulthood can be a period of opportunities and advancement but it is also risky and challenging. At the same time young people possess the energy, motivation and vision essential for positive social change. Click here to learn more about the UN Youth Development Agenda. The Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development strengthens collaboration and exchange among UN entities to increase the effectiveness of UN work in youth development.
