Eastern Partnership Forum started with work and hot discussions on the youth unemployment.  Actually all the discussions at moment dance around youth unemployment today, because 5 million young people face challenges to find a job in the European Union (Eurostat Nov 2014 Data). In general we face the fact that we have crisis, so we need to bring more attention to the youth sector, education. To promote youth to the employment market and maximize efforts on the synergy. 
Questions we are working at moment:
How to change employment situtation in our region.
What are the responces from different actors regarding the NEET* issues. 
What is the main challenges a young person faces in your community when entering the labour market.
What is the contribution of the mobility programmes towards tackling youth unemployment.
What is EU solidarity, how should we strengthen it.
And the last, but not the least question: wow much do policy measures correspond to the real needs and interests of young people? By the way, 70% of the youth workers and experts claim that current policy only partially corresponds to the real interests of young people. Something work and something doesn't work isn't reeally the answer, we need practical changes to the youth policy.
Glossary: What is N.E.E.T? A NEET or neet is a young person who is "Not in Education, Employment, or Training".
