You are welcome to participate in a conference Extended Youth Guarantee. The conference will take place on the 17th of October at the Stockholm Region EU Office on Avenue Marnix 28 in Brussels. This event would be a great opportunity to meet again and see how we can proceed with our cooperation after hearing the latest updates from the Commission.
Please confirm your interest of participation by filling this application form until the 1st of October (until 5 PM, GMT+2). Registration will remain open depending on availability. Please see program (draft version) of the conference.
The purpose of the conference is to highlight successful initiatives that have taken place at national and transnational level. And during the event we aim to give a platform for exchange of opinions from various actors about successful efforts in the past that have provided valuable inputs for continuous work but require a common vision for the entire EU.
The conference gathers policy officers and project coordinators who have been working with young people who are at risk of early school leaving or who are in NEET situation. Several good examples are going to be presented by large-scale projects and measures from Finland, Latvia, the Netherlands and Sweden.
Along with presentation of these Projects, we have invited specialists from Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture and Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion to share their reflections and discuss the remaining challenges at the EU level.
About project Plug In and SALAR
Plug In has been Sweden’s largest collaborative project in prevention of early school leaving at upper secondary school level since 2012. The Project has been led by the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions.
The project has been organized in a multi-level system and have had eight Swedish regions as partners. In total, 80 of Sweden’s 290 municipalities have participated with one or more local projects during the project period.
The aim was to decrease the dropout rate in upper secondary school, and to get more young people to complete their studies with diploma providing basic qualifications for higher education.
