ECOSOC Youth Forum: "Realizing the future they want"

Last updated: 6/2/2014 // -Every unemployed youth is a waste of resources, said Anette Trettebergstuen at today`s discussion on Youth Employment.

ECOSOC Youth Forum is taking place at the United Nations Headquarters June 2-3. Anette Trettebergstuen took today part in a moderated conversation focusing on the promotion of Youth Employment together with Ms. Esther Agbarakwe, Ms. Alian Ollivierre, and Mr. Matteo Landi.  The speakers discussed how to ensure that decent jobs exist for young people in the future, including jobs that promote sustainable development and information and communication technologies. - Norway's low unemployment level is neither due to oil nor luck. It is due to political priority, said Trettebergstuen, who is member of the Labour and Social Affairs Committee, and the Elections Committee of Norway.

The forum aims to bring the voice of youth into the discussion on shaping the future development agenda.
