Within Utrecht University’s research theme Dynamics of Youth, scientists from all fields of expertise study how young people develop in our rapidly changing society.
Investing in the future
In dealing with social problems, you need to start with the children. Dynamics of Youth is about working together in order to better understand child development. It’s about how people become who they are, and why they do what they do. Children growing up today will eventually shape our world in the near future, so we are investing in the future. But children are also a vulnerable group, and we as a society must ensure that they can grow up healthy in mind and body.
