World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Annual Survey 2017

“Young people feel that they’re not being listened to by global decision makers. But with over half of the world’s population under the age of 30, it won’t be long before they will be making their voices heard. Almost 25,000 people aged between 18 and 35 from 186 countries and territories took part in the Global Shapers Annual Survey 2017. It showed that 55.9% of respondents believe their views are not being taken into account before important decisions are made. But young people’s influence will only get stronger as they occupy an increasing proportion of the global workforce, voter base and their consumer spending power grows. The results of the survey, compiled by the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community, offer an interesting insight into how young people view the world and its challenges. Governments, businesses and other institutions that ignore the current generation of young people do so at their peril. Here are five things we learned from the survey. You can explore the results in full here.”
