kick-off event: youth employment promotion

March 15th in room 2023 from 15.00-16.45

Millions of young people are unemployed worldwide; In addition, youth are disproportionally affected by poor working conditions. On top of this, the world of work is changing and requires new and innovative solutions that offer employment and income for future generations. The Swiss development cooperation has gained experiences which contribute to the SDGs and offer valuable insights on how to effectively promote youth employment. It is characterized by a holistic intervention in different labour market dimensions and a systemic approach.

Join us for a kick-off event that will provide an introduction and will be followed by a series of interactive online meetings – we call them e-Talk! (e-Talks! will link experts with (field) practitioners to discuss different topics and practical solutions related to youth employment.)

For this event we are very pleased to welcome:

- Stefan Butscher (Regional Advisor Employment and Income for the Western Balkan Region) who will share his experience from a portfolio of projects addressing critical dimensions of youth employment.

- Roman Troxler, former SDC JPO who will share his experience working in the Greater Lakes Region in a VSD project (PROMOST II)

We are looking forward to welcoming you. A more detailed agenda will follow shortly. Please share this with interested colleagues in your division and interested partners/audience outside SDC. The latter need to register with: martina.bietenhader@eda.admin.ch

Best regards,

Peter Beez
