The opinion Italians have on Italy's development cooperation appears to be improving. This is what emerges from the last Eurobarometer survey. In 2015, 90 per cent of interviewees deemed it is important to help developing countries, with a 10 point increase over 2014, the largest in Europe. There are also more and more people who believe that the fight against poverty in developing countries should be a top priority for the European Union (72 per cent, 12 points more than in 2014) and for the Italian government (56 per cent, 11 points more than in 2014). Two thirds of Italians (66 per cent) also deem that aid to development should be stepped up, while 80 per cent considers it to be an effective tool in combating poverty in DCs (versus a European average of 67%). Not only. Our fellow countrymen believe, more than the other Europeans (79 versus 73 per cent), that aid to development is an effective way for curbing illegal immigration. Finally, 53 per cent of interviewees deems that each person can play a role in combating poverty in the developing Countries. Furthermore, the results of the survey shows that it is precisely the young people aged between 15 and 24 those who have a more positive view of cooperation activities. This is a particularly significant result in that it arrives upon conclusion of the communication activities that Italian Cooperation carried out at Expo Milan 2015, where it organized 36 events and a multi-media experience within the framework of the European Year for Development, with initiatives addressed to the public at large, the students of all school levels and the universities.
