Young people around the globe are growing up amidst a plethora of socio-ecological crises. Their lives and futures are marked by climate change, wars, security concerns, social unrest, and pandemics. This situation worries many young people. At the same time, they are left with a feeling that their worries are ignored or that they are not heard equally to older generations.
From the perspective of young people’s experiences, it is imperative to ask how the older generations can ensure that the world will be safe for both the contemporary young people and future generations. The questions of a just and fair world are not only matters of political decision-making and participation but concern young people’s daily lives, social relations, transitions to adulthood, youth cultures and spaces, institutions governing young lives and intergenerational interaction in general.
The NYRIS conference welcomes contributions from a variety of angles, discussing economic, ecological, historical, and social aspects of building a sustainable world and societies together with young people.
The 16th NYRIS (Nordic Youth Research Symposium) is hosted by Tampere University (TAU), and organized in collaboration by The Finnish Youth Research Society, youth work and youth research at TAU, PERLA - Tampere Centre for Childhood, Youth and Family Research and Childhood and Youth Studies at University of Helsinki.
