Celebrating the world’s most impactful policies to empower youth
The 2019 Future Policy Award was dedicated to policies that empower young people to build a fair and sustainable future, that advance youth access to decent jobs, including green jobs, and enhance their civic and political participation for sustainable development and peace.
Among the winners were policies from Rwanda, Estonia, Scotland (United Kingdom), Nepal, South Africa, Europe, Los Angeles (USA) and Senegal that had been selected from among 67 nominated policies from 36 countries. The 2019 winners of the “Oscar for best policies” were celebrated at the 2019 Future Policy Award Ceremony on 16th October 2019 during the 141st Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Belgrade, Serbia, in presence of more than 500 speakers of parliaments, parliamentarians and ambassadors from across the globe.
The Future Policy Award 2019 was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Michael Otto Foundation and the Jua Foundation, our partners – the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), our great supporters – the Office of the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and Youth Policy Labs – as well as the efforts of many further people.
