    The theoretical part of the thesis outlines the impact of the current situation in society on young people’s participation, with emphasis on political participation. The empirical part focuses on the barriers that stand in the young people’s way to become active citizens, on how they are experiencing participation and on the possible solutions that young people see in this respect. I have found in my research that young people are currently experiencing financial, residential and employment challenges as well as difficulties in gaining independence from parents, and with education and studies. Fear and uncertainty are also present when young people are facing those challenges and passivity. Although the respondents do not underestimate the conventional forms of participation, they prefer modern ways of engagement. They see the solutions for current challenges in specific daily activities and at the same time outlining the importance of new and alternative possibilities.
