Working with youth: Addressing the youth employment challenge - Highlights of the national and regional events with young people Between March and mid May 2012, at the request of the Director General, the ILO organized a series of National and Regional Events on Youth Employment across the world. March was selected as the Youth Employment Month. With nearly 5,000 participants in 46 countries, the national events brought together youth, policymakers, and social partners, who exchanged views on the current situation, shared experiences and good practices, and provided ideas to foster decent work for youth. The events were programmed in anticipation of the Youth Employment Forum, to be held in Geneva on May 23‐25, 2012. This report summarizes the events’ discussions and brings them as key input to the agenda and activities of the Youth Employment Forum.
