The LevelUp! Workplace Place Tutor Goes Europe has published its first public document and its first internal document.
Entitled "Youth unemployment and ways to overcome it. The European Experience" is the final product of the network debate on this issue and summarizes the results of the first Multiplier Event of the LEVEL UP project which took place in Valencia (Spain) on the 8th of March 2016, with the participation of VET professionals and stakeholders from the different countries involved in the project, giving policy recommendations from the perspective of the network.
The youth of today are our future, politically, economically, socially... They will rule the world and will be the leaders of political, business, trade union and social organizations. Therefore, they should play an essential role in the debate about what society we want for the future, especially considering how fast the events unfold in this new digital age we are living, to which they are much more adapted and in which they progress at an exponential speed.
In times of economic recession, employment contracts decrease and unemployment increases considerably. For young people, these periods are doubly problematic: they are not only the firsts in the jobs cuts, but their transition from the educational system to the labor market is practically impossible. This situation causes despair and social instability.
