More than five million young people are unemployed in the European Union. This means that more than one in five young Europeans on the labour market cannot find a job. Vulnerable young people without job and social protection often feel excluded and marginalised. Researches have  shown that youth unemployment is significantly associated with mental health difficulties. 40% of jobless young people report symptoms of declining mental health, including feeling of self-hatred, suicidal thoughts and panic attacks.

Лидер, который больше всего находится под давлением в Евросоюзе сегодня, — это французский президент Эммануэль Макрон. На него возлагают надежду за спасение и укрепление еврозоны. Во-первых, его движение La République En Marche! получило мандат французской Национальной Ассамблеи на реформы и теперь пришло время перейти от слов к делу, провести экономические реформы и радикально снизить уровень безработицы в стране. Во-вторых, Европарламент и другие европейские лидеры ждут от Макрона выполнения амбициозных обещаний о судьбе Евросоюзе.
