In a year that has seen youth activism extend across the globe and drive real political change, the white paper created in conjunction with One Young World, “Beyond the Long Spring of Dissent,” acts as a temperature check on a generation facing increasing obstacles.

The white paper follows research conducted by YouGovStone on behalf of One Young World, which surveyed young people ages 20-29 from 21 different countries around the world on important global issues.
