Youthwise 2023/2024

The TUI Care Foundation is supporting this year’s OECD’s Youthwise initiative, which brings youth perspectives and ideas to the OECD and improves youth understanding of the Organisation’s work and international policy making.   

It offers young people the chance to take part in closed-door meetings and consultations and engage with OECD experts, members of the TUI Care Foundation team and other external stakeholders on a range of issues and themes. 

The OECD created Youthwise in 2021 to recognise the role of young people in shaping the future of policymaking and to create a platform for them to bring their perspectives, insights and ideas to the international organisation.  

Through interactive physical, virtual and hybrid workshops which are supported by the TUI Care Foundation, the participants will gain a greater understanding of key policy issues affecting young people. The key topics for 2023 are school-to-work transition, climate resilience & transition to net-zero and youth policy, which includes challenges such as skills and youth participation. The first of these workshops took place on the 5th of April 2023 in Paris. It officially launched discussions that will lead to recommendations for the OECD’s Ministerial Council Meeting in the Summer and the creation and co-authoring of documents, articles and videos for young people to share their views by the end of the programme in March 2024.
