Young people are our future but also our present. The opportunities that are being created for young people today lay the foundations for what economies will be able to achieve tomorrow. It is through employment that young people can realize their aspirations, improve their living conditions and fulfill their responsibilities, not only as productive agents but also as citizens. Creating employment opportunities for young people makes economies stronger.

The Republic of North Macedonia,Romania and Italy are faced with many challenges related to youth employment. Additionally, COVID-19 has a serious influence on youth employment and will lead to higher youth unemployment rate.
