Engaging Youth in Meaningful Employment (live stream)
Format: Interactive Panel and Q&A

Developing solutions to ensure young people engage and stay in meaningful employment to achieve success in the labour market

Employment can provide not only financial security, but support independence, mobility and self-development. Meaningful employment - feeling an authentic link between work and a broader life purpose - can improve our performance, job satisfaction and give us a sense of fulfilment and empowerment, particularly for disadvantaged groups. Yet globally too many young people are denied or have limited access to the labour market. How can we ensure that all young people have the skills and opportunities to pursue meaningful work? Our expert panellists will explore some of the innovative solutions that have been implemented around the world, drawing on the themes of technology, gender, creativity and inclusivity.
