Youth Unemployment

The global recession associated with the Covid-19 pandemic has hit young people the hardest and has had long-term consequences, especially on those without proper vocational education or those unable to compete due to discrimination or limitations. LYMEC seeks a liberal solution to the issue by advocating on a European level for the removal of barriers, working on mutual recognition of vocational and academic degrees and better support in the transition from education to the job market, sharing best practices on how the education system needs to reflect the change in the European population; backing the creation of more paid internship possibilities connecting young people all over Europe and offering them new opportunities.
