Description

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has launched a video contest for young people (from 18 to 29 years) to show how the global jobs crisis is affecting their lives.

Here’s an opportunity to share with the world and with other young people like YOU, just how the global employment crisis has affected you, your friends, your family or community.

Use creativity and originality to describe (by video) how the youth employment crisis has affected you or your community. Are you having trouble transitioning into the job market? Have you lost your job or are you struggling to find one? Do you work under poor conditions? Share your thoughts and suggest an innovative idea that you think could help! If you have a story to tell, we’re ready to watch and listen. Videos must be your original work.

Prizes

Three winners will be invited to Geneva (all expenses paid) to attend the ILO Youth Employment Forum, to be held from 23-25 May 2012, where they will have the opportunity to present their videos.

The Youth Employment Forum will gather more than one hundred young people who are engaged in promoting decent work for youth. The Forum will provide a platform for young people to share their experiences and views on the current employment situation, as well as to discuss successful initiatives that create more and better jobs for youth.
