TOPIC: Youth Unemployment
WANTED: Your Practical Ideas

How can youths be part of the solution?
The Essay Competition 2010 invites youths to share ideas on How can you tackle youth unemployment through youth-led solutions?

Please answer both questions:
1. How does youth unemployment affect you, your country, town or local community?
2. What can you do, working together with your peers, to find a sustainable solution for job seekers through youth entrepreneurship?  Think specifically about the barriers youths face in the labor market and how to tackle difficulties in accessing capital for business startups.

We encourage you to give concrete examples if you have personal experience as a young entrepreneur and if not share your ideas about how you would go about creating a business/ work opportunities in your local community/ town/ country.

Awards are sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway, the Government of Sweden, and the World Bank.
