Empowering futures: Demystifying career pathways through a youth lens

The European Training Foundation (ETF) and the UNICEF Europe and Central Asia Regional Office (UNICEF ECARO) are organising on 12 March 2024, in Brussels, a hybrid event on “Empowering Futures: Demystifying Career Pathways through a Youth Lens”, to present and discuss the joint ETF-UNICEF study on career guidance demand amongst youth.

The joint study aims at capturing young people's opinions and perceptions on access, expectations and needs with regard to career guidance and counselling as well as career education to inform policy responses to significant socio-economic and technological changes and challenges ahead, and ultimately empower young people.

Throughout the year 2023, surveys and focus groups were conducted among 7,400 young people across 11 countries and the Europe region, covering Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Kosovo*, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

The main objectives of this event are to launch the joint study and share the main findings to inform policy responses aimed at enhancing the career guidance counselling, and ultimately empower young people.

Target audience: policy makers, young contributors, EU and international institutions and organizations
