Here we come! Conference on Talent Management and Youth Perspectives in the Western Balkans

Belgium, Brussels, 1000, Hilton Brussels Grand Place Hotel, Carrefour de l'Europe 3
Tuesday, June 19 2018 / 08:30

The conference, organised by the Antall József Knowledge Centre in cooperation with the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies, will discuss the current challenges of young generations and the future of innovation and entrepreneurship in the Western Balkans. Youth unemployment is one of the main drivers of emigration of young people all over the Balkans. The mass exodus of youth from the Southeast European neighbourhood is a severe consequence  of  sectoral  problems,  strongly  related  to  unemployment, higher  education systems, as well as to the job market conditions. In addition, these countries are also facing brain drain. In this complex situation, the role and importance of social responsibility and entrepreneurship are becoming more and more significant. We are organising this interactive conference to ensure that the voices of youth are heard, as well as to find a way to introduce best practices. We believe that the Western Balkans has a huge potential rested on the will of its youth.
