Action to reduce unemployment - publicise your projects!

Good morning

Action to reduce unemployment – publicise your projects!

I am writing to you because at this November’s European Employment Forum we want to highlight some of the best EU projects aimed at combatting the current high levels of unemployment across member ! states.

This year’s Forum will meet to discuss such topics as:

• Youth unemployment
• Public and privately-funded employment projects
• Apprenticeships
• Social impact of high unemployment
• Free movement of labour within the EU
• Entrepreneurship

With the aid of grants from funds such as the European Social Fund, the Regional Development Fund, the brand new EU programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), and others, hundreds of thousands of projects are being run to alleviate the negative effects of unemployment on individuals and society.

People who attend the Forum are a mix of EU politicians and strategists, social actors, corporates – and all of the! m are vitally aware of the need to tackle unemployment, especially among our young people and those who have been out of work for long periods. These people can give publicity to your work, so that others across the EU can copy your successes, or perhaps avoid some of your problems.

Are you involved in this type of activity? The Forum will showcase successful employment initiatives in Europe. It is an excellent platform for you to disseminate information about your work across Europe. Do you have data you can share with this audience?

If so, please submit an outline of your project to me for consideration as soon as possible. We have limited space within this section, so places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Kind regards
