Over 10 million young people are neither in employment nor education (NEET) in the European Union.
How can we help them find jobs?
We were looking for an answer to this question in Italy, Hungary, Poland, and Spain. We will present our results and discuss:
- which public programs are helpful and which are costly and ineffective,
- why reaching out to young jobless people is such a challenge and what should we do about that,
- why young women have worse employment opportunities and how to strengthen gender equality.
The Youth Guarantee has helped millions of young people across the EU in recent years. However, not all jobless people could use it. Should we cover all vulnerable individuals with the new EU initiative ‘Bridge to Jobs’, we must find a way to improve public programs.
Dr Max Uebe, Head of Unit Future of Work, Youth Employment in DG Employment will give
