Community of practice youth in agribusiness - Supply and demand factors impacting youth employment and entrepreneurship

Community of practice youth in agribusiness - Supply and demand factors impacting youth employment and entrepreneurship

Aperçu de l'événement

Young people struggle to make the transition from education to work to become financially independent. A growing aspiration gap lays bare the friction between economic realities and what it means for youth to be gainfully employed or a successful entrepreneur. The agri-food sector holds a great deal of potential. While national and global organisations are recognising the urgency of addressing the matter of youth employment and entrepreneurship, their approaches have yielded varying results. Will present interventions lead us to achieve our ambitious goals?

In this 5th community of practice meet-up, CTA and WUR want to discuss with you about the framework and accompanying brief they developed on “Supply and demand factors impacting youth employment and entrepreneurship”. The purpose of this model and the brief is to propose a systems approach and to serve as a guide for those who are deciding where to best intervene or for their investments to have greatest impact on youth employment and entrepreneurship.
