YFJ: Call for participants: Quality employment for sustainable development
Description of event: The European Youth Forum is organising an event on ‘Quality employment for sustainable development’ on 28-30 May in Sofia, Bulgaria, in cooperation with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.
The event will discuss the following topics:
- What does ‘quality employment’ mean in the framework of sustainable economic development and more broadly the SDGs?
- What kind of quality jobs can ensure sustainable development, now and in the future?
- What is the role of young people in these economies/jobs/future of work?
It will consist of an introductory high level panel on quality jobs for sustainable development and 2 interactive workshops:
(1) on sustainable consumption/production and the green economy
(2) on entrepreneurship in a changing world.
The event will close with another high level panel on technology and its impact on sustainable development.
