The youth unemployment crisis is a global phenomenon, as relevant in the Global North as the Global South. Following a European Union grant in 2012 to look at examples of effective practice of youth job creation in Europe, we started to research and find out what was going on at a global level, too.

We compiled an index of over 900 green job creation initiatives tackling youth unemployment in Europe.
