On 28 March 2022, the EESC's Labour Market Observatory will hold a remote public hearing on youth participation in the EU labour market.

The COVID-19 crisis has aggravated inequalities and the impact on young people is stronger than for other age groups. The youngsters who were in education or training at the time of the pandemic have seen their schooling interrupted and often need to catch up. Among those in employment, many lost their jobs and the recently graduated have not always found employment. In the context of the European Year of Youth, the event will examine, through a discussion with civil society organisations and socio-professional stakeholders, the challenges, opportunities, and current trends concerning youth on the EU labour market.

Speakers due to attend include representatives of the European institutions, Eurofound and the EESC, as well as the social partners and other civil society organisations.
