Our Global Review number six is devoted entirely to today's youth, with particular emphasis on the Portuguese and Europeans. That is why we interviewed Hugo Carvalho, president of the National Youth Council, with which the Estoril Conferences establish a partnership to organize a special event.

On the occasion of the National Youth Encounter to be held in Cascais - European Capital of Youth 2018 - the Estoril Conferences will organize a special edition of the Youth Summit dedicated to Human Rights.

But the special focus of this Global Review goes to the European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation. Carlos Moedas spoke about the future of Europe and the future of young Europeans, alerting to the number of opportunities that exist and are not being used and reminding of the launch of the Horizon Europe program.

Pedro Neto, Executive Director of Amnesty International Portugal, called on young people and their activism to join together because the world needs them; and João Paulo Rebelo, Secretary of State of Youth and Sport, explained the importance of policies aimed at young people, as a way to increase youth participation. Dedicated to young people, we could not have this Global Review without their collaboration.

Francisca Nunes and Kiara Ferraz shared the story of how the contact with the Estoril Conferences eventually led to the arrival of Rajendra Pachauri in Cascais and Tomás Correia, president of the ISCSP International Relations Student Group, shared with us his views on the relationship between youth and democracy.

In her editorial, Teresa Violante, Director of the Estoril Conferences, spoke about our youth projects and called for young people to participate in the forthcoming European elections in May 2019, underlining their importance.
