Venue: European Union House, Dublin
Eurofound, together with the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI), is organising the launch of the new findings on the Social Situation of Young People in Europe.
NYCI will present the Irish perspective on the findings, covering:
- The relationship between youth unemployment and perceived social exclusion, the experience of loneliness, the lack of social supports and lower levels of trust.
- Access to housing and the fact that young people are living longer with their parents!
- The decrease in mental well-being of young people in Ireland and access to health care
- The positive findings (high levels of participation in clubs and sports)
Welcome messages will be delivered by Paschal Donohoe, Minister of State for European Affairs at the Department of the Taoiseach and Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Juan Menéndez-Valdés, Director of Eurofound.
Speakers include Anna Ludwinek, Research Manager, Living Conditions and Quality of Life Unit, Eurofound (European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions), Marie-Claire McAleer, Senior Research & Policy Officer, National Youth Council of Ireland, (full running order below).
