Presentation of the "Report on the situation of youth employment and unemployment" by the Memur-Sen Youth Commission
The Memur-Sen Youth Commission has published its report on the situation of youth employment and unemployment which affects more than 11 million young people in our country. The report highlights the aspirations of young people and provides a series of recommendations to fight unemployment and promote job creation.
At the press conference organized by the Memur-Sen Youth Commission, its president, Mustafa Başkara, spoke about the economic shock caused by the health crisis that has greatly diminished the employment prospects of young people. Based on a selection of examples of initiatives in the field of youth employment, the Memur-Sen Youth Commission's report proposes a proactive approach to youth employment to serve as an "idea bank" for employers.
One in four young people in our country is currently unemployed.
The report also reveals that efforts for youth must increasingly respond to their needs and orientations, through broad consultations with their representative organizations. Youth policies are an integral part of the overall social policy and therefore there is a need for cross-sectoral coordination.
Another major objective of youth policies is to reach out to people who, for whatever reason, find themselves in a difficult situation. With determination, it is quite possible to improve the living conditions of young people, especially in the area of health, said Mustafa Başkara.
Finally, with regard to the limited opportunities that the labor market currently offers, new approaches are needed. In addition to education that is better adapted to the needs of employers, it was suggested that vocational training programs should focus on developing the entrepreneurial spirit of young people. To support these initiatives, youth access to credit must be facilitated and access to better knowledge and skill sharing on a global scale must be enhanced.
