In a press release from May 2019 from the European Council referring to Young people and the future of Work, the Council highlighted insecurity, the lack of social protection and precarious working conditions as the main problems facing young people in the current and future labor environment. A number of measures to address these problems are identified in the conclusions: adaptable and responsive social security and education and training systems, the promotion of lifelong learning, ensuring smooth school-to-work and work-to-work transition, as well as equal access to quality jobs for all young people.

The conclusions also recognize that the European Union should support young people’s personal developmentand growth to autonomy, build their resilience and equip them with the necessary resources to participate in society, thereby contributing to the eradication of youth poverty.” (
