The second of five events of the multi-stakeholder workshop series 'Leaving no one behind' took place on Monday June 17, 2019. 50 stakeholders attended to discuss the implementation of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) in the field of decent work for young people in Austria.
The event included an inspiring keynote by EU youth ambassador Ali Mahlodji in which he stressed the potential of young people to deal with the challenges of the labour markets of the future. A panel discussion with representatives of youth organisations, employers, labour organisations and relevant public authorities discussed how far Austria is in providing decent work for (all) young people and where further efforts are required. Four working groups discussed specific challenges like the situation of workers in the gig economy.
