The training course will cover the thematic of youth unemployment, social exclusion and social entrepreneurship. Particularly, it will engage participants to reflect on the current situation regarding youth unemployment in Europe and invite them to conceptualise social exclusion, discrimination and xenophobia, especially when combined with unemployment.
