European Youth Capitals - boosting youth employability in times of disruption - 12WS22417

Youth Empowerment


How can the relationship between local authorities and young people facilitate the transition from education to work? We will see how, via the EYC title, young people have been able to receive support in the transition from education to employment, but also launch startups and collaborate with various stakeholders. EU representatives will speak about the support from EU mechanisms for cities in fostering youth employment. Start-Net will add examples of labour market inclusion at the local level.

The workshop is aimed at deepening understanding of the support from local authorities to young people in their transition from school to jobs, as well as the mechanisms fostering youth entrepreneurship and innovation.
