European Conference on Youth Self-Employment
10/11/2016 - 11/11/2016
The important youth unemployment in the EU has become a major societal challenge, which various public and private actors are trying to respond to. Given that traditional forms of job creation by way of salary employment are not sufficient to absorb youth unemployment, it is imperative, in the current European economic context, to encourage self-employment so to facilitate the access of young people in the labour market. In this perspective, the Regional Union of Municipalities of Attica (P.E.D.A.) in collaboration with the European Network for Inclusion and Local Social Action (E.L.I.S.A.N.), has decided to invite European, national, regional and local authorities, public or private entities, to present their best practices, share their experiences and discuss about how different actors can work together to promote entrepreneurship and youth self-employment.
During the conference, three prizes will be awarded to implemented actions, which facilitate young entrepreneurs’ access to finance, coaching and advice services, as well as training and networking.
