"When the socioeconomic and living conditions of young people were considered, the following issues were identified: school retention rates, the transition to working life, entrepreneurship, promoting a global outlook, civic involvement, regional development, the environment and health. These issues also reflect young people’s major concerns. We grouped the issues into six challenges that we must meet:

Education and Employment Challenge – Transitions to independence

Entrepreneurship Challenge – For an enterprising Québec

Health Challenge – For our collective well-being

Regional Challenge – Young people driving development

Diversity Challenge – For an inclusive society

Environmental Challenge – Young people working for a greener Québec"
