The International Youth Job Creation Summit was an urgent response to the global crisis of youth unemployment. Hosted at the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, the one-day event explored how job opportunities can be created for a billion young people entering the global workplace over the next decade. The 165 delegates were made up of a global network, half of whom were young people.
