The social and cultural boundaries that have long distinguished childhood, youth and adulthood are rapidly changing. Children are physically developing earlier and faster and because of social media they have access to a virtual world outside their immediate families and communities. They are growing up in a world more culturally diverse. The period of transition from childhood to adulthood is becoming extended and more complex. The transition from education to employment reflects these complexities in particular. Traditionally, young people moved from formal education or training to work, with gender and socio-economic background being major determining factors. Today, education and work often occur simultaneously and retraining or lifelong learning is becoming a feature of adult life.
Young women and men are particularly affected by development challenges at all levels, frequently faced with disproportionately high levels of unemployment, insufficient access to education and professional training, intolerance and exclusion, among others. This is all the more importance in cities where increased urbanization has further accentuated these challenges for young people.
