3. Social context for the well-being and health of young people in Luxembourg

3.2. Political structures and general living conditions in Luxembourg

What this is about

At this point, we set out Luxembourg’s key characteristics as a European parliamentary democracy. The country is relatively small compared to its neighbours. Its economic strength is a draw for many people. They either commute to the Grand Duchy for work or settle here to spend their entire life in the country. Luxembourg is correspondingly home to a wide variety of people of different nationalities and multiple languages are spoken. Having three official national languages is definitely an unusual state of affairs. Luxembourg is wealthy. We have a high standard of living. However, this also means that living in Luxembourg is expensive, and our environmental consumption is high. These are all factors that have an impact on young people’s well-being.
