The Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit is an annual convening that brings together 500+ youth and economic development stakeholders from 55 countries to connect, exchange, and collaborate.
This year's Summit theme, "The Future of Work: Youth Economic Opportunity in a Changing World", will explore what the future of work holds for young people in developing contexts and for professionals working to expand youth social and economic inclusion globally.
Barbara Rambousek, the EBRD Lead Inclusion Economist will give a lightning talk about the private sector as the engine for youth inclusion, the EBRD’s new economic inclusion strategy and how EBRD works with the private sector in addressing skills mismatch and increasing economic opportunities.
The EBRD supports countries towards an inclusive market economy where anyone - regardless of their age, gender, place of birth, socio-economic environment, or other circumstances - can access economic opportunities.
The EBRD works with the private sector and policy makers to support young people by facilitating school-to-work transition, addressing skills mismatch, and improving the access to finance.
