The 2015 EU Youth Report was published on 15 September 2015. It presents a full picture of the situation of young people in Europe and how policymakers have addressed it in the period 2013-2015.  


The EU Youth Report reveals that generally young people are better educated than their predecessors and less young people drop out of school in the EU. Yet, 8.7 million young people aged 15-29 are unemployed, 13.7 million are not in employment, education or training (NEETs) and close to 27 million are at risk of poverty or exclusion. "NEETs" tend to participate less in social activities, vote less and have less trust in institutions. Young people are active users of Internet and social media. Around half are active members of organisations. One in four has been a volunteer.
