The Autonomous Region of the Azores being one of the youngest regions of the European Union, the Regional Government of the Azores recognizing its human potential and attentive to the constant social, economic and cultural changes, considers that the upcoming years should be a milestone in the implementation of its audacious programmes in the field of youth, namely in what matters to the creation of an innovative, creative, supportive, and entrepreneurial youth.

In this regard, the Azorean Youth Observatory presents itself an important instrument for the study and analysis of the Azorean youths and as a support mechanism for the definition and management of the public policies, based in strategic guidelines, with objectives and measures that reinforce the Azorean youth and qualify them to overcome the new challenges.

The Azorean Youth Observatory, a project developed between the Government of the Azores, through the Regional Directorate for the Youth, and the University of the Azores, through the CICS.NOVA, besides allowing the dissemination of updated knowledge and information of interest to the youth, through the website, will serve for a greater understanding of this age group and for political decision-making.
