Finding work is one of the biggest challenges facing young people today. With rising education costs and no work for an increasingly overqualified youth, the future seems bleak for many. What can governments, businesses and leaders in civil society do to change this? How can economists and policy-makers ensure a stable future that will boost job growth?
We want your input for two high-level sessions that address these questions:
World Economic Brainstorming: Youth Employment Crisis – Time for Action (9.00 – 10.15 EEST 5 June 2012)
Business leaders, policy-makers, the Forum’s Global Shapers, Global Agenda Council Members and other experts will explore what actions can help solve the youth employment crisis in the Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia.

Do emerging markets have what it takes to capitalize on their strong economic growth by building the financial hubs of the future?
