Finance Think became a partner to the Decent Jobs for Youth initiative. It has pledged a commitment to generate knowledge in support of the development of evidence-based national policies and strategies to improve young people’s access to decent jobs.
Finance Think will generate knowledge and create awareness about the youth employment challenge in North Macedonia through the production of different knowledge products. These products will be shared with policy-makers and other youth employment stakeholders to ensure youth rights and voices are embedded in employment strategies and plans. Moreover, Finance Think aims to increase youth awareness of their rights at work, allowing young people to recognise the rights they are entitled to and advocate for its protection.
Our commitment will boost action and impact on Youth Entrepreneurship and Self-employment and Youth in Fragile Situations. Through our commitment, we aim to strengthen the issue of youth employment on the agenda of policymakers and propose specific youth-friendly policy actions.
The Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Decent Jobs for Youth was launched in 2016 as a UN system-wide effort, focusing on the youth employment challenge that is central to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It has emerged as a global, multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together governments, social partners, the private sector, youth and civil society organizations, and others. They work together to share knowledge, leverage resources and take action at country and regional level, to support young people in accessing decent work and productive employment worldwide.
