Founded in 1992, Kunsill Nazzjonali Zgħazagħ (KNŻ) is the national representative body for all Maltese youths of ages between 13 and 35. The National Youth Council of Malta strives to be a proactive primary source of information, idea-generation and innovation both in Malta and Gozo. KNŻ, as a political body, is tasked with providing a forum of dialogue for young people on various national and international issues, while bridging policymakers and various key actors in Malta’s political and social spheres to young people and their organisations.
KNŻ is composed of over 30 member organisations that span from the political, environment to human rights groups. The common aim is that they all work for youths and/or are youth-led.
