Estonian Youth Guarantee and Its Values
Young people who are not in education, employment, or training (NEET) are one of the most important
global social challenges (OECD 2011). The European Council (2013) suggested that every Member State
should support young people to avoid the subsequent high costs of excluding young people from the
labour market, education, and training. In 2013, the European Council approved the creation of the Youth
Guarantee to ensure that young people under 25 years of age will receive a good offer of employment,
continued education, apprenticeship, or training within four months of becoming unemployed or leaving
education. Estonia approved the Youth Guarantee programme in 2014. The Youth Guarantee report of
2016 of the European Commission emphasises the need to further focus on better sectoral
coordination, early intervention, and unregistered NEETs.
With the recent COVID-19 outburst, COST Actions have become seriously limited in promoting the involvement of stakeholders, whether they are other researchers and scholars, policy-makers, representatives of public services or NGO’s.
In the case of CA 18213, this is a very demanding situation. That is why we offer this webinars sessions for all the members, stakeholders and persons interested in our topic.
