A key challenge in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to create decent jobs, particularly for women and youth.
Elena Rodríguez Blanco, founder of Authenticitys will be a speaker at the brainstorming session entitled
Work 4 Progress: Innovation for promoting jobs during the European Development Days by “la Caixa” Banking Foundation.
How can we promote innovative solutions for employment in developing countries?
They’ve proposed to move beyond traditional approaches limited to isolated projects towards true platforms for innovation and socio-economic change. This means working via multi-stakeholder partnerships including the private sector, civil society, academia and beneficiaries themselves in order to build tailored programs adapted to each particular geographical situation.
They have invited the audience to take part in an interactive session where participants will be invited to collaboratively discuss such an approach and to share best practices.
Stay tuned for the date and keep in touch to see what this stimulating debate on the 8th of June will bring!
