Cooperation and Development Network (CDN) and Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG) are announcing an open call for members of preparatory team (prep-team) for the study session “Work that Works for all: Shaping Europe’s Future of Work” which will take place from 16th to 21st of November 2021 in the European Youth Centre in Budapest, Hungary. The arrival date for the participants is 15th and departure date on 22nd. More information on the project you can find here.
With this activity we aim to empower 40 young Europeans in accessing their social rights – the right to decent work (the right to work, and the right to adequate social protection) and support them in becoming agents of change in their local communities through human rights education. This will be done by meeting the following objectives:
- To explore the legal, structural and societal challenges and barriers young people face while accessing their right to decent work in different European countries;
- To deepen participants’ understanding of youth unemployment and youth precarity, their social (political, economic) and individual (physical and mental health) consequences, and the intersection of these consequences;
- To explore the existing opportunities and initiatives for young people in accessing meaningful work, adequate standard of living and social security, as well as to develop participants’ understanding and solidarity about the social and economic conditions their peers are facing;
- To equip the participants and their organisations with the tools for countering the challenges and consequences of inaccessible Social rights.
