Partners with YES 2002!
We are happy to inform our members of Mandate the Future's partnership
with the Youth Employment Summit (YES) 2002 to be held in Alexandria,
Egypt, in September 2002.
As we approach the event, youth around the world are joining together
and getting organized to raise those crucial concerns facing
unemployed/underemployed youth. From Tanzania to The Philippines,
Romania to Paraguay, young people like yourselves have organized
national consultations on Youth Employment and are setting up national
committees or national networks to promote employment creation for and
As managers of the YES 2002 web board, Mandate the Future will be with
these creative and enthusiastic youth communities as they chart the
course of their own working futures. Through these online discussions,
MtF will participate in outlining and fine-tuning issues that youth are
raising about unemployment with the help of youth opinion and
experience, and of experts in the diverse employment fields.
Join us on ctrlaltesc.org for and contribute to these discussions. And
if you would like to make new friends interested in employment issues,
register at the official YES 2002 website at
http://boards.edc.org and share your views and experiences
with active YES 2002 list members from all over the world.
We hope these discussions will lead to meaningful interventions on
policy and practice. And it is crucial that youth get involved in the
making of their own futures. So don't be left out!
