INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 'YOUTH EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP: NEW WAYS FORWARD'
This one-day conference aims to discuss with policy makers, academia and international organisations how the the public and private sectors can work together and create new youth employment opportunities through social investment and entrepreneurship.
The conference places a particular emphasis on the use of social investment and social entrepreneurship as tools to foster youth employment. Policy makers and experts from both Portugal and abroad will exchange their views and experiences, and discuss how to make these two tools more effective. The role the EEA and Norway Grants may have on improving the current situation of jobless youth will likewise be discussed.
The Conference is organised and sponsored by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the NGO Fund Operator in Portugal.
