Decent Working Conditions: Raising Awareness among Young People
A collection of good practices on organising young workers and raising their awareness on decent working conditions in Ireland, Italy and Denmark.
There is a large focus on the youth unemployment in the EU and the Member States. Additionally, a focus has also shifted towards the quality of jobs. The decent work agenda has become a focal point in round-table discussions, international conferences and national social dialogues. Every so often, it is agreed at these gatherings that empowerment of young people by creating favourable conditions for them to develop their skills and to work and participate actively in society is essential for sound and sustainable economic and social development. Current project “Decent Work for European Youth” has aimed to turn these ambitions and goals into practical involvement of youth.
