Page under construction
Within the framework of the Local Youth Plan (Plan Communal Jeunesse-PCJ), a series of local youth studies has been and is being carried out in which the leisure and living situation as well as the needs of young people in Luxembourg municipalities are described and analysed. Topics such as family situation, social origin, ethnic heterogeneity, school situation, value orientations and life goals as well as political and social participation are also taken into account. These findings support the municipalities in systematic and sustainable planning and implementation of their youth policy decisions. An important concern here is the orientation of the measures to the needs of the young people themselves.
