Emerging youth cultures
From February 6 to 9, the Pontifical Council for Culture had its Plenary Assembly looking at youth issues in the different Continents. The aim was to ensure that pastoral care proposes answers to questions that actually exist in this evolving and changing reality.
The analysis is of adolescent and youth cultures, of those aged between 15 and 29 years. It is a world marked by complexity, fragmented into different types, with no single or homogeneous model. Its variety depends on the influences of family and economic factors, on social environment, formative capital and hyper-stimulation, and the enormous communicative possibilities of emerging visual cultures. Listening to the new generations and considering their situation is a valuable opportunity and a must for adults and for Christian communities.
