Summary and objectives: We are certainly concerned about the youth unemployment rate that we have reached in Europe. According to some experts this could lead in a “lost generation”, a generation of youngsters who will be forced to live with fewer resources than the previous one.

We will gather to explore and share the concept, consequences and causes of this huge unemployment rate in Europe and we will share and learn new methods to empower ourselves and our youngsters in order to gain employability. We will work hard to learn and understand the importance of soft skills, competences and abilities that young people could require to have access to the labor market.
