International Symposium on Youth Employment Challenges

After the successful first and second edition in 2014 and 2016 that gathered many international specialists from the public, educational and private sectors, the 3rd edition of the International Symposium on Youth Employment Challenges will take place in AGU facilities in Kayseri, Turkey.

Youth employment has grown in prominence on national and global development agendas. The youth employment challenge has its own dimensions and confronts countries worldwide regardless of their stage of socio-economic development. The underlying problems are the large number of young people entering the labour markets every year, the lack of employment opportunities, and the low quality of education and training without a proper link to the labour markets.

 As a result of the rapidly growing rate of unemployment–due to multiple factors and global economic, cultural, demographic, and financial challenges–and in the effort to address this urgent issue, Abdullah Gül University (AGU) started to organize an international symposium for youth employment, and invited experts from formal, non-formal, and private sectors.

International Symposium on Youth Employment Challenges which is an international platform for young people and employees, private sector representatives, social entrepreneurs, and academicians to discuss challenges facing youth employment, to share good practices and expertise, and to brainstorm suggestions and solutions to tackle this issue.
 
The aim of this symposium is to outline the dimensions of the issue, the motives for intervention, and the possibilities of improving youth employment through cross-sectorial cooperation.
