With youth unemployment rocketing up to 60% in some countries, government policy-makers, educators, and business leaders across Europe are striving to find solutions that will help them secure a vibrant economic future.
That is why the British Council is organising SEE into the Future, a prestigious conference that will bring together leaders of national and local government, business, and education to address issues around skills, entrepreneurship and youth employment, with a particular focus on the needs of Southern and Eastern Europe and Central Asia. This conference will take place in Istanbul, 13-14 February 2014 and registration will be opening shortly.
Come and learn what experts on employment, social inclusion and skills from organisations such as the European Commission, the OECD, and national governments have to say on these critical themes. Find out what policy and practice in tackling youth employment is working in neighbouring countries, and what lessons have been learnt. Discuss and debate with leaders in government, business and education what skills industries need for growth in modern economies, and how we can prepare young people for the vibrant, dynamic economies of the future we desire.
With thanks to our partners, and as part of our commitment to support effective policy and practice in employment, skills and entrepreneurship through international discussion and debate, we are offering participation at this two day conference for the hugely discounted early bird rate of £100. This fantastic offer includes participation in all conference sessions, tea and coffee breaks, lunch on both days and a stunning conference reception.
Save the date now! and watch out for further information about the conference and registration coming shortly. In the meantime, join the discussion on Twitter using #SeeIntoTheFuture.
