Mobility to tackle unemployment

11/08/2010

"The European Commission helps mobility, training and exchange of information, which all can contribute to alleviate growing youth unemployment, and unemployment generally", said Commissioner László Andor at the Sziget Festival on 11 August in Budapest.

Mr Andor was speaking at an event where representatives of Spain, Belgium and Hungary inaugurated a tree dedicated to the current trio of European Union presidencies. The tree of the EU trio has been created jointly by Spanish, Belgian and Hungarian artists. Festival-goers could place messages on the tree which appeared in digital form on the tree's facebook page.
