The CSIS-IYF Youth, Prosperity and Security Initiative Announces

The Global Millennial Viewpoint Series

Millennials are redefining everything from global security and economics to marriage and work. IYF and CSIS surveyed 7,600 youth between 16 and 24 years old in 30 countries to gain insight into how young people may shape our world in the years to come. A few highlights from our findings:

Youth themselves are deeply affected by the threat of terrorism and that concern limits their travel. Forty-one percent of young people in our survey said they will not travel internationally due to fear of terrorism.

Despite all the challenges they face, young people are overwhelmingly optimistic about their futures . Two-thirds say they think their country’s economy will improve, 60% feel that their standard of living will be better than their parents, and 75% feel they will be able to get the kind of job they want.

To learn more, join us for a series of briefings on the results of the 30-country survey exploring millennial perspectives on security, governance, economics, work, education, health, civic participation, and values.

Please note there will be no live webcasts or recorded videos for these events.
