Globally 71 million young people are unemployed. The International Labour Organization estimates that 156 million young people are living in poverty, even though they are employed. Young women, disabled youth and those in rural areas are disproportionately represented in these statistics. If not accompanied by economic opportunities, investments made in young people’s health, education, training, civic participation and access to technology are unsustainable. Participants will discuss strategies to address the individual and socioeconomic contexts in which vulnerable young people live to facilitate effective economic inclusion and decent work opportunities.
