UN forum looks at the problem of youth unemploymentListen /
One of the key markers in a young person's life is getting their first "real" job. But many young people around the world say this is becoming more and more difficult.
They shared their views and experiences at the UN on Friday during a forum addressing the challenges of youth in finding decent employment.
The event was organized by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and its outcome will be shared at the upcoming Rio+20 conference in Brazil.
