Youth and work Youth unemployment and the need to integrate young people in society is a pressing global issue. In Europe, the proportion of young people aged 15 to 24 years is set to decline by a quarter – from 12.6% to 9.7% – between 2005 and 2050, while the 65-years plus group will increase from 16.4% to 29.9%. Yet it is often difficult for young people to get started on the employment ladder. The rate of youth unemployment is 20% or higher in 12 of 26 European countries.

For Europe’s policymakers, such differences present serious challenges as they seek to increase productivity, boost employment and improve the quality of work.
