The OECD Council adopted the Recommendation on Creating Better Opportunities for Young People in June 2022, with the aim of improving youth measures and outcomes. The recommendation emphasizes government-wide strategies and policy principles that focus on skills and competencies, labor market outcomes, social inclusion, youth well-being, and trust in government and public institutions. The OECD has been working on youth-related issues for the past two decades and updated its Youth Action Plan in 2021.
A consultation of young people from 20 OECD Member countries was conducted in September 2021 to ensure their views and perspectives were reflected in the recommendation. The recommendation is structured around five building blocks: knowledge and skill development, labor market support, social inclusion, trust in government, and administrative capacity.
