GYC2012

 

This year's GYC aims to have an inclusive agenda addressing global youth unemployment crisis, following one of the core millennium development goals of the United Nations and the World Bank Group to: “achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young people.”

 

The Conference will also be alligned with the launching of World Bank's World Development Report 2013 on Jobs, and its main objective is to:

  1. Raise awareness and gain momentum of global youth unemployment issues;
  2. Inspire youth to take action and empower them to become part of the solution and;
  3. Bridge generations and gender barriers to tackle the challenges together

The GYC will host discussions panels from different international experts about current pressing situation of youth unemployment and steps taken to enhance and create job opportunities in diverse sectors of economy.
