BRIEFLY: Employment is a right, Youth Forum says

Entrepreneurship education in schools and improving youth employability are key ways to deal with youth unemployment, according to the report Youth Employment in Europe: A Call for Change. The report was launched at an event with the same name, organized by the European Youth Forum at the OECD in Paris, where young delegates have spent the last two days discussing issues such as youth unemployment and the skills-jobs mismatch. “Policy makers must be held accountable to the young people of Europe and young people must demand their right to fair, decent employment”, the report concludes.

The 2012 Education for All Global Monitoring Report will focus on how skills development can improve young people’s opportunities for decent jobs and better lives.
