“Youth Employment in Europe: a Southern approach, a European solution”


17-21 May 2012 | Leganés (Madrid), Spain

This course will contribute to find solutions that can put an end to the serious and growing problem of youth unemployment suffered by Europe, in particular, in Southern European countries.

Specific objectives:

  • To learn data and identify common elements in youth employment that may explain the high rates of youth unemployment in Southern European countries and the precarious conditions of youth employment
  • To discuss and make proposals to solve the weaknesses and failures detected from the above analysis
  • To discuss about how to transmit the analysis and proposals to the competent authorities, considering their level of performance, whether national or European level through the European Parliament, through Action 5.1. projects, that is through the Structured Dialogue
  • To promote within the European Youth Forum, as a youth representative platform at the European level, an approach to youth employment more sensitive and closer to the reality of the South, mainly in the following issues:

– precarity,
– transition from education to the labour market,
– entrepreneurship.
