Youth unemployment and inactivity is an enormous structural problem across Europe; moreover, too much of what employment there is for youth is of low quality, precarious and leads nowhere.

These problems have been drastically worsened by the current economic crisis, which has disproportionately affected young people; in some parts of Europe youth unemployment has reached catastrophic levels.

This project seeks to address structural youth unemployment and poor employment, by establishing Local Partnerships for the advancement of Youth Employment and Opportunities, driven by city administrations, of local stakeholders, to advance youth employment and opportunities, as an approach to the development and maintaining of a competitive and sustainable local economy and social model.
