  • Labour Market Observatory Public hearing
    Public Hearing - Brussels, Belgium

    The event's topic was one of the highest priorities at EU level and its organisation was very well-timed, as the Member States were beginning to implement several EU policies for youth employment (such as the Youth Guarantee). Therefore, it was important to assess the level of involvement of civil society organisations in these policies, to recall the significant role that these organisations can play and to put forward their recommendations and best practices.
