The world is currently home to the largest generation of youth in history. Youth voices should be at the forefront of advocacy for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and in uncovering the barriers to access faced by people across the world. Young people’s valuable perspectives highlight SRHR, education, and climate change as key issue areas for a more just and sustainable future. Centering resilient youth voices is crucial to the movement as they continue to advocate for comprehensive access to SRHR for all.
