Integration of young adults into the labour market – Portuguese Media coverage of the YOUNG_ADULLLT Project
The integration of young adults into the labour market is a topical and pressing theme across Europe and a hot topic in the news media. In an interview to the Portuguese news agency (LUSA), the YOUNG_ADULLLT team in Porto emphasized the relevance of the project's attempt to identify well-suited Life Long Learning (LLL) policies at both local and regional levels with which the integration of young people in the world of work can be optimized. Tiago Neves, leader of the Porto team, underlined the importance of taking seriously the young adults' perspective as their individual life projects are affected by and affect LLL policies. "The compatibility of policies and life projects", as he points out, "is essential to get young adults into the labour market." More articles will follow regarding first results of the project.
