Young people: Acli Roma, “the capital offers few opportunities to under 30s, 46% would leave”

46% of young Romans would leave the capital, mainly to look for job opportunities elsewhere. This is what emerged from a survey by Acli Roma which involved over 1,000 young people aged between 17 and 30 years. The young people answered an anonymous online questionnaire. In terms of the city’s attractiveness, 54% said they would not leave Rome, but 46% would: 41% indicate lack of work as the main reason while 30% indicate poor quality of life. Instead, it is the leisure and entertainment sector (67%) and culture that keep young people anchored to the capital: for 63% of the interviewees it is the strength of the city. A city with few young people (only 5% of the Roman population is between 18 and 30 years old and 9.5% between 31 and 35 years old), many of whom are ready to flee. Another very important issue is that of housing: among the full-time employees only 46.3% are economically autonomous from their family of origin and therefore can afford to live alone, while the condition of semi-dependence concerns as many as 42.8 % of young people who work. The evaluation of Roman public transport stands at 4.66 on a scale of one to ten, that is, less than mediocre. In general, 43% complain of daily delays, 31% of uncertain waiting times, followed by poor cleaning at 22%. The most sore point concerns buses and trams (80% of choices), followed by the subway (15% of choices). Just over one in four boys (27%) is actively involved in the activities of his neighborhood, while the others do not take part, mainly due to lack of interest (42%) and of actual time (27%). Note a 20% who would like to participate but are lost because they do not have useful points of reference. It will be discussed on June 10, at 3 pm, during the second online appointment (on the Facebook and YouTube pages of the Acli di Roma) of the “Cantiere Roma”, the initiative promoted in view of the administrative elections of 2021, with the aim of to outline, through six web talks, the city of today and tomorrow as seen by citizens. At the end of the appointments the Acli of Rome will present a document with food for thought and proposals to the candidates for mayor.
