 About the initiative

 

Decent employment, which allows people to earn a living, to  participate in society, to develop their skills and to find satisfaction is a fundamental need for everybody and for each society.

Today, jobs are changing fast, new kinds of work develop and traditional professions disappear. At the same time, globalisation, migration, new technologies and the economic crisis all affect jobs and the way we work in Europe.

The European Union provides opportunities for job creation, labour mobility and training, while setting standards for health and safety at work. However, unemployment, especially among young people, remains an enormous challenge.
