Young people are no doubt those who have the least power and the least responsibilities. And yet, they form organizations and networks, organize in their schools, etc. We will be studying their vision of responsibility and drawing its main lines. The young people (16 to 30 years old) targeted by this survey will be from several continents so we can adopt a cross-cultural analysis of these issues.
Our expected outcome is to have the youth leaders and their key players draft a document, “Reflection on the Ethics and Responsibility Action of the Young.” The document will feature an analysis of experiences and a discussion on their implications, and the proposals formulated by the young for practicing responsibility, based on the Charter as reference. This document will serve as a tool for dialog to enhance the young people’s integrated constructions in the field of Ethics and Responsibilities.
