A hundred young people and companies from the region of Cantabria (Spain) met on November 25th, 2020 in the virtual meeting (“Bussiness Meeting”), of the FOLM Project which aims to promote the integration of young people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are not currently studying or working into the labour market.

The president of the Chamber of Commerce of Cantabria and the General Director of Youth, Irene Lanuza, opened this event, in which participating companies have encouraged young people to continue fighting for their personal development and have offered themselves as a bridge of opportunities. Ms. Lanuza assessed that in such a complicated year it has been possible to “reach out to 300 young people from Cantabria”, who participate in the FOLM program, and has thanked the companies for their participation, assuring that “the objective is that our youth can have a new channel of employment in which they can develop their skills and fully integrate into the society to which they belong”.

From his side, the General Director of European Funds, Paz Díaz, said that the administration must develop new policies that respond to the needs of youth and bet to refine the relationship between Administration, youth and companies. Paz Díaz proposed a reformulation of public policies in order to:

  • Coordinated work.
  • Improve youth employability through the Employment Service of Cantabria.
  • Establish long-term links with private sector.
  • To support and monitor young people in the process of entering the labour market.
