With over 20 percent of Europe’s youth now unemployed, and with austerity threatening to undermine welfare provision across the continent, this generation of young people faces the dual crisis of youth unemployment and economic insecurity.

This event will discuss the causes of the crisis, its social and economic implications, and possible solutions as part of a wider programme of citizens’ consultations taking place across Europe (People, Power, and Participation). Together, they will inform policy recommendations that will be made to the European Union.

This will be an opportunity for an exchange of ideas between experts, civil society, and young people. It will begin with a short panel discussion, which will be followed by two focused breakout discussions on 1) tackling youth unemployment, and 2) social guarantees in a time of crisis.

A networking session will precede the forum starting from 17:30. Wine will be served.
