During this year, young trade unionists in CESI have worked hard to raise awareness of the challenges facing young people in Europe today: unemployment and precarious work. This work has been coordinated by CESI’s Youth representative Matthäus Fandrejewski.
Proud of the work achieved so far, Matthäus said “We have had a great start to CESI Youth: the youth camp, working more and more with the European Youth Forum and in particular our creative ideas for this year’s European Youth Event. It’s all thanks to CESI’s young members and I am looking forward to building on what we have achieved so far.”
CESI Secretary General Klaus Heeger passed on his congratulations to CESI Youth’s work: “Over the past year I have seen CESI’s young members coming together at European level to share their experiences and to talk about challenges facing young people in the workplace. If the situation in Europe has improved, young people have not been the beneficiaries. This means it is even more important to give young people a voice, which is exactly what CESI Youth does.”
CESI Youth will now begin work on a resolution for youth work in Europe.
