The future of work: Tackling the big challenges

The unpredictability of today's labour market is especially challenging for young people as they navigate their first steps in the world of work. Several big trends such as globalisation and digitalisation are transforming the way we work, creating new opportunities, but also bringing many risks. At the same time, high youth unemployment rates still persist, and young people are struggling with long and difficult transitions from the education system, unpaid internships, and the lack of proper working conditions. How do we ensure that young people have decent work and that they benefit from opportunities today's labour market offers?
