This paper introduces the project and review current research on the concerns of young people around contemporary local and global issues. It will outline the methodology used in the study and will introduce some of the key similarities and differences between the countries, in particular the data from the UK. Recent guidelines in England advise that children learn about peace and conflict, globalisation, poverty, prejudice and sustainability, yet little is known about children’s interest in such issues.
