The focus groups held across seven countries sparked a comprehensive report uncovering insights into youth safety covering five crucial areas: peer violence, cyberbullying, substance abuse, discrimination, and mental health.
Not only did this research delve into the current state of youth safety in Albania, Italy, Poland, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jordan, and Tunisia, but it also explored existing national and local support measures.
We went further, diving deep into the perspectives of young people themselves through quantitative and qualitative analysis. Their voices resonated throughout the report, offering both candid assessments of these five safety challenges and powerful recommendations for improvement.
This wasn’t just about understanding – it was about action. The report outlines clear pathways for operationalizing these recommendations at both national and European levels, taking into account the unique context of each country.
This comprehensive report is a springboard for positive change, driven by the voices and needs of young people themselves. With its actionable insights, we can now collaborate to build a safer, more supportive environment for young people across Europe and beyond.
