Youth employment

It is one of the biggest problems in the European Union: youth unemployment. It is the cause of social tensions and hopelessness, particularly in the countries of southern and south-eastern Europe. And in many European countries, young workers suffer from low wages and precarious working conditions. Often, they are not able to access labour markets, so many young people emigrate to try their luck abroad. At the same time, young people are the future of Europe and the European Union. At EZA, we use our networks to identify solutions and promote new approaches for youth employment.
