The official launch of the Youth Employment Magazine is announced on the UN International Day of Friendship. Nearly 200 institutions from 26 European countries implementing projects financed by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway unite to share results of their initiatives aimed at combatting youth unemployment in Europe.
NESET (NEETs’ Empowerment for Sustainable Employment in the Tourism sector) is one of those projects, implemented by a consortium of 13 organizations, led by the Varna Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Bulgaria), with the participation of Einurð ehf. The countries, covered by the NESET project activities include Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Romania, and Iceland as an expertise country.
The NESET initiative addresses issues related to the effective labour integration in the tourism industry in partner countries of 25-29-year-olds, who are neither in employment nor in education or training. A solution to these problems will be sought through the implementation of international job placement mobilities, support for youth business start-ups in the tourism sector and the creation of an e-Support platform.
