WIPO Intellectual Property Youth Empowerment Strategy IP-YES!

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has published its Youth Empowerment Strategy (IP-YES!), which provides a structured plan of targeted and effective initiatives to respond to the aspirations and needs of youth on key issues such as enrichment of their knowledge in intellectual property matters, the development of skills and the strengthening of actions for their active participation in intellectual property matters.


In WIPO’s first global survey of public awareness of intellectual property (WIPO Pulse), which involved a sample of 25,000 people from 50 countries, it was found that respondents between the ages of 18 and 24 had a significantly lower degree of awareness than with other age groups.
