NEET Inclusion

This project NEET inclusion focuses on full and meaningful participation of young people in decision-making processes including creation of opportunities for underrepresented groups of young people. The work plan targets young people NOT in employment, education and training (NEETs). Due to their absence from basic societal systems such as work, schools, vocational institutions, the chances of reaching out to them, having their input and providing services for them is more demanding. That is why they often fallout from the usual outreach of Civil Society Organizations (CSO), despite the fact that it is youth organizations that should involve NEETs.


NEETs capacity building in Estonia gave us a space to look at NEETs group and their issues in a wider perspective of SDGs and Agenda 2030. What is the future of our societies? What are our current and future obsticles on the way to social inclusion and development?
Our experts presented the frame of this topic and opened it for a group discussion. It was a time of deep reflections on NEETs situation in Europe and a bunch of great ideas coming from young social activists!
