aims to consolidate knowledge and information on youth policies—understood as policies pertaining to young people’s rights and realities—across the entire policy cycle, ranging from analysis and policy formulation to policy implementation and evaluation.
The portal will feature a knowledge repository and a community built with open-source software and based on the principles of social networks. The structure will allow youth policy actors across the globe to interact and will leverage the wisdom of crowds by aggregating information through the expertise embedded in the portal and its community.
