Enabling a generation to work: innovation and partnership to tackle youth unemployment

16 October 2017 at 13:30 in Conference Room B

In partnership with Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN)

All stakeholders, including public, private and civil society actors, stand to benefit from investing time and resources in the issue of youth unemployment. This moderated panel discussion will facilitate the sharing of best practices with a particular focus on private sector-led initiatives. As well as looking at some of the innovative employer-led solutions that have reaped rewards, attendees will also be encouraged to share their own success stories and inspire discussion. And we’ll be asking - what more could all stakeholders be doing to get the younger generation on the career path?
