Kick off meeting

Kick off meeting

Rural NEETs’ Youth Network (RNYN) is a running four-year COST Action that kicked-off on the 14th of October of 2019. The network aims at developing a model of comprehension for rural youths not in education, nor in employment or training (NEET). This model is supposed to unfold social exclusion risk and protective factors associated to this group. According to the EUROSTAT, NEETs are more prevalent in rural regions, compared urban and suburban areas, especially in Southern and Eastern European countries. Thus, this situation represents a threat, but also an opportunity for rural development.

NEET youths profile in The Azores: What do we know so far? (In Portuguese)

This webinar aims at synthesizing the current knowledge about NEETs in The Azores Islands. To do so, the session will start by an analysis of the evolution of NEETs in Europe, Portugal and The Azores, for the past 10 years. Afterwards, three studies that were undertaken in Region will be summarized. These studies will focus on NEETs profile, lower qualified NEETs professional expectations and also on their perceptions about dominant sectors in rural areas, namely agriculture. The webinar will involve about 10 professionals and intermediate leaders of The Azores Islands employment public services that work directly with NEETs, in the context of the Youth Guarantee program. The session will be held in Portuguese and will include a brief presentation, group discussions and a Q&A session. The expected duration for the webinar is 60 minutes.

NEETs: profiles and typologies

29.June.2020 – 15:00h CET | PREMIUM SESSION
Massimiliano Mascherini (Head of Social Affairs Unit, Eurofound)

NEETs: profiles and typologies

Youths not in Employment, nor in Education and Training (NEET) is a very heterogenous group. Some distinctions have been made between subgroups, based on age subclasses or on unemployment/inactivity status. For the past decade, Eurofound has worked to capture more specific types of NEETs and how they may differ across sex, age groups or degree of urbanization.

Good practices to reconnect young rural NEETs: public policies versus local responses

Based on the results of two research projects, one focusing on the implementation of the European
Youth Guarantee program in Portugal and the other a case study at the local level with young rural
NEETs, we intend to discuss and reflect on the potential and limits of these two types of intervention
aimed at reconnect young people in NEET situations with institutions – educational, training and for
employability.

Youth participation in labour markets: Insights from 11 European countries

09.July.2020 – 15:00h CET | PREMIUM SESSION
Jale Tosun (Heidelberg University, GER)

Youth participation in labour markets: Insights from 11 European countries

This webinar will draw on the CUPESSE projects findings to analyze youth participation in the labour markets. Some findings stem from this research project. Family matters: there is a striking degree of parent-child similarity in the work-related attitudes, values and decisions and labor market outcomes. Many young Europeans depend on the financial assistance from their parents even if they are employed. Nonetheless, the future expectations of young people are mostly positive and not determined by the level of youth unemployment in their country of residence. The perception of the causes of youth unemployment differs between young people in Greece, Italy and Spain, even though labor economists see parallels. Young people living in rural areas indicated that they lack access to networks that would help them to find employment

Estonian Youth Guarantee and Its Values

13.July.2020 – 15:00h CET | PREMIUM SESSION
Heidi Paabort (Eesti Avatud Noortekeskuste Ühendus) | Kerli Kõiv (Eesti Avatud Noortekeskuste Ühendus)

Estonian Youth Guarantee and Its Values

Young people who are not in education, employment, or training (NEET) are one of the most important
global social challenges (OECD 2011). The European Council (2013) suggested that every Member State
should support young people to avoid the subsequent high costs of excluding young people from the
labour market, education, and training. In 2013, the European Council approved the creation of the Youth
Guarantee to ensure that young people under 25 years of age will receive a good offer of employment,
continued education, apprenticeship, or training within four months of becoming unemployed or leaving
education. Estonia approved the Youth Guarantee programme in 2014. The Youth Guarantee report of
2016 of the European Commission emphasises the need to further focus on better sectoral
coordination, early intervention, and unregistered NEETs.

Being NEET in Europe Before and After the Economic Crisis: An Analysis of the Micro and Macro Determinants

16.July.2020 – 15:00h CET | PREMIUM SESSION
Antonella Rocca (University of Naples, IT)

Being NEET in Europe Before and After the Economic Crisis: An Analysis of the Micro and Macro Determinants

This webinar will analyse the main determinants of the propensity to NEET status in a selection of European countries. For the younger cohort, NEET status is mainly influenced by the school-to-work transition while for the older cohort (NYNA) this status is primarily due to labour market functioning and institutional factors. The NEET rate os directly related to the structural unfavourable conditions of the labour market and passive subsidies to the unemployed, and inversely to the rate of growth of GDP, the active labour policies and the investments in education
