“Empowering youth for decent work” is addressing the current challenges young people are facing at the labour market. It is focusing on young unemployed people, youth who are working in short-term, unstable and precarious conditions and  young people who are already employed. Through the partnership established among different organisations addressing these topics, the project will offer space and opportunities to share knowledge, practices and approaches to working with youth. We will create new and innovative models addressing young people in order to introduce these topics to them and to other actors in this field, all with the aim to empower them in the transition from education to the labour market.

The aim of the project is to empower youth in the transition to the labour market and introduce them with the rights they have as unemployed, engaged in precarious work or in employment. Within the project we will compare the situation of young people living in Slovenia and Spain where the consequences of youth unemployment and precarious work are very prominent. Our main approach will be to address this issue with correlation to European policies influencing labour market and legislations.

Partners: Mladi Plus (SLO), UGT-Juventud Spanish National trade union confederation (ES)

The project is co-financed by Erasmus + Programme.

Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
