1.        Background

Towards 2030 -
Reaching out to, working with, and supporting young people, will cover the period 2021 to 2030 and focuses on all young people aged 13 to 30. It is a policy that is based on building on the success of the past five years while focusing on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

The policy is embedded in related national policies as well as in European and international youth policies.
It will complement National Policies in related fields such as Education, Employment, Justice and Health that impact on the lices of young people. It seeks to be flexible and innovative - ranging from the local to the national and from the national to the European and the global. It aims to support and encourage young people, both as individual and citizens, in schools and other educational and training institutions, in work, in the community and through social media. Empowering young people  through the effective practice of youth work, including the digitalisation of  youth work; regional and locally-based centres and supports; national programmes, projects and initiative and cross-sectoral initiatives with the voluntary, state and private sectors, are central to its vision.

Towards 2030
sets out six strategic goals and accompanying actions that will be implemented over the period 2021-2030. Overarching responsibility for implementing Towards 2030 will rest with the Ministry for Education and Employment and the Parliamentary Secretary for Sport, Youth and Voluntary Organisations, while Aġenzija Żgħażagħ will be responsible for strategic planning, implementation and day-to-day operational matters.

This Document seeks to ensure that all those people, groups and organisations that work for and with young people have the opportunity to actively participate and contribute to its development and implementation.
