ViacomCBS Networks International and EU40, in partnership with Euractiv, are promoting BEYOND 2020: GLOBAL YOUTH – VOICES AND FUTURES, a virtual event during which the results of the ViacomCBS research entitled “Beyond 2020: Global Youth – Voices & Futures“.
Moderated by MTV’s VJ Aminata Belli, the debate will last one hour and will see the participation of prominent speakers such as:
- Christian Kurz, Senior Vice President of Global Insights, ViacomCBS;
- Virginijus Sinkevicius, European Commissioner for the Environment;
- Eva KAILI, Greek Member of the European Parliament;

Beyond 2020: Global Youth – Voices & Futures is the first global study to examine how the events of 2020 are shaping young people’s plans, confidence and attitudes about the future. Through an international survey of more than 8,000 16-24 year olds in 15 countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, the UK and the US), young people were asked about their views on a diverse range of topics: health, climate change, politics and social issues, travel, finance and relationships.
The research shows that these teens are part of an active generation, deeply affected by the events of 2020 that have inevitably led them to value stability and security more than ever before. At the same time, the survey highlights some interesting insights about resilience and the strong will to change the future for the better, two elements that will be the focus of the reflections that will take place during the event.
