TIG's First Podcast Launches this week

From the Scouts to sports groups, political youth organizations, to environmental clubs, youth activities in many countries are coordinated by National Youth Councils. Over the past months, TakingITGlobal has conducted an international research project looking at their creation, evolution, purpose and structures. As part of a Canadian mapping project, this research was supported by the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation.

In an interview with the researchers of the report themselves, Franziska Seel and Clarisse Kehler Siebert, as well as with Leif Holmberg of the European Youth Forum, TakingITGlobal's first podcast lets you hear first-hand why National Youth Councils are so important.
