The Universitat de València, through the Vice-principal for Culture and Equity and the IVAJ (Valencian Institute for the Youth) started during the last academic year ‘Generació Jove’, a series of debates about topics related to the youth. The edition of this year starts on Monday 24 October, at 19:00, in the Cultural Centre La Nau.

The presentation of this new edition of ‘Debats a La Nau-Generació Jove’ will count on the attendance of the Vice-principal for Culture and Equity of the Universitat de València, Antonio Ariño; the autonomus secretary for Inclusion and the Valencian Unit for Equality, Alberto Ibáñez, and the general secretary of the IVAJ, Jesús Martí. 

In the opening session, Anna Sanmartín, coordinator of the Reina Sofía Centre on Adolescence and Youth of the FAD, will present ‘Scopio Proyect: youth development rates’, a global project of compilation, systematisation and obtaining of data for the analysis of reality and socialisation of the youth. Rates are made using data related to education, employment, emancipation, life (mortality, fertility, accidents and suicides) and the use of new technologies. There is a still photograph that enables to compare in a transversal way the state of the Spanish youth with the European youth and also among the autonomous communities:

‘Generació Jove’ is part of the ‘Tema Jove’, an initiative by which the IVAJ, with the collaboration of the Universitat de València, approaches through talks, round tables and presentations of studies of the youth the issues that most affect them. This activity is especially addressed to professionals who work in the area of associations, university students and city halls or to the Consell de la Joventut de la Comunitat so as to design policies to better know and improve the situation of the youth.
