Youth Forum “Creating a Sustainable Future: Empowering Youth with Better Job Opportunities” - ECOSOC
04 May 2012
Since the onset of the global economic crisis, youth unemployment has increased across the world, affecting both developed and developing countries alike. This problem poses significant challenges not simply to the youth themselves but also to the capacity of companies and countries to innovate and develop competitive advantages which are critical for economic recovery.
The programme will consist of an opening plenary, to be followed by two dialogue classroom sessions on “Training and education to facilitate access to job market” and “Promoting youth employment-Creating jobs for a more sustainable future”. Youth representatives around the world will participate in this event.
