We believe all young people are entitled to employment that is fair, secure and free from discrimination.
Being able to find quality work and to access all social rights is essential for young people in order to participate fully in society, be autonomous and to avoid the pitfalls of poverty and social exclusion. The European Youth Forum fights for a more social Europe, where young people can have full access to quality education, quality jobs, social protection, affordable housing and healthcare, free from any discrimination.

It analyses how the pandemic and lockdown measures have already severely affected young people’s work and income, education and learning, and mental health and wellbeing. This research is based on the findings of a survey of 4,500 young people across Europe as well as focus groups to get more detailed feedback from young people on their experiences.
