Mrs Eunice Campbell-Clark on promoting young people’s transition to autonomy and working life through local and regional policies

Date(s) from 31/03/2017 to 31/03/2017

On 29 March 2017 the members of the Congress adopted a report presented by Eunice Campbell-Clark (United Kingdom, SOC) containing a set of proposals on concrete policies to support young Europeans’ access to autonomy and working life. ‟We want young people, including the most vulnerable, to be fully-fledged citizens who enjoy their rights without any discrimination and are considered as legitimate partners for public authorities” said the Rapporteur. ‟First employment” contracts, official recognition of internships and voluntary work as professional activities, access to affordable housing, free health centers and human rights education are measures which can be taken by local and regional authorities, if they fall within their competence. Youth delegates aged between 16 and 30 from 44 countries actively participated in this debate together with the members of the Congress.
