On International Women‘s Day and less than three months ahead of the biggest demonstration of European democracy - the European Parliament elections in May - we are asking ourselves: where are the young women in politics?
Introducing the Youth Forum's #ChangeisComing European Elections campaign! On 23-26 May people from across the continent will have a chance to shape the future of Europe they want to see. The question is, will there be a space for young people to have their voice heard?
The world of work is changing, shaped by four global megatrends: globalisation, climate change, demographic changes, and technological advancements. Each megatrend brings its own unique challenges for young people and the future of work, as well as some opportunities. With the potential of these megatrends to shape the type of work that is required, the type of work that is available, and who undertakes it and how, there is a need to reflect on the role and value of work in society and in people’s lives.
an’t always predict the future. But we can shape the future of work we want! The European Youth Forum’s new report being launched today, The Future of Work and Youth, responds to these challenges, putting forward solutions to on how to rethink ‘work’ in our society and on how to design a new labour market that works for everyone.
Last week, the European Youth Forum was at the United Nations Commission for Social Development (11-21 February) working to put the spotlight on the necessity and urgency of a rights-based approach for youth at the UN.
