Welcome to UP2YOUTH: Youth - actor of social change

Welcome to the UP2YOUTH Internet Portal

6FP LogoUP2YOUTH is an EU-funded research project concerned with the agency of young people in the context of social change.

This regards especially work, family and citizenship which are the key topics of UP2YOUTH. However, it depends on the scope of action that state policies provide them whether these strategies contribute both to social integration and for subjectively meaningful biographical perspectives.
