Italy's National Youth Policy
Every year, in the "Unified Conference", the Government, the Regions and the Autonomous Provinces sign a formal agreement to establish the reference framework for youth-related objectives and projects. With reference to the share allocated to the Regions and the Autonomous Provinces, the new agreement of 2020 sets the following priorities: the inclusive participation of young people in the social and political life of the territories, so that they can participate in decision-making and guide policies aimed at the targeted audience; projects that promote active and direct participation of young people in cultural and sporting activities, including through the use of the national Youth Card; activities of orientation and dissemination of good practices, aimed at the prevention of juvenile distress, particularly new addictions affecting the younger generations.
