MI GENERATION. New book release announcement: «MI GENERATION. The Governance Programme for Youth Policies of the City of Milan (2013-2014)»

The recent widespread tendency to approach youth policies as an emergency matter within the context of the economic crisis has undermined the attempt to build policies to strengthen the autonomy of young citizens. This attempt consists of cross-policies that are able to spur innovation, networking and opportunities to ease the transition to adult life.
These are the preconditions on which the Youth Department of the Municipality of Milan has participated to the tender promoted by the Regional Government of Lombardy for the creation of a youth policy plan aimed at testing new governance methods, which would both promote participation and representation.
What follows is an analysis of this first experimental governance model, for the years 2013 to 2014, and the result of the joint efforts of the Municipality offices and the four main Universities in Milan. The authors, whilst maintaining a critical point of view on the contemporary youth condition, invite the reader to consider the fundamental role of public institutions in converting the potential of new generations in the city of Milan into positive action within new urban contexts.
A very contemporary analysis, touching upon different relevant areas – studying, working, living, new participation networking forms- and encouraging the debate on new governance models aimed at promoting full participation and community activism in young people.

With an afterword by Giuliano Pisapia, Mayor of Milan city
