Ahead of our Run for Employment that will take place in the framework of the European Week of Sport read an interview with Lidija Globokar – the President of Project 668 on the role of sport in fighting youth unemployment (the text was originally published on EuropeanPublicAffairs.eu)
Project 668 and B!ngo are proud to announce the Run for Employment, a positive response to the challenge of youth unemployment. The event will take place within the European Week of Sport, organized by the European Commission. Registrations are now open!
One of the first activities of the month has been the organization of an apéro meeting in order to get to know the other members of the team and meet other people interested in our ideas. The meeting took place on the 25th of November at “The Old Oak”, Rue Franklin – Brussels.
Our 1st strategic team weekend took place last week and I would like to share some insights about it with you.
Why I chose such a provocative title? Because it refers to our team motto “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” (Henry Ford). I believe that we can definitely say that we worked together during the weekend and generally speaking this stands for the team behind Project 668.
The big day had arrived and we were all curious, anxious, nervous and excited at the same time. Will there be enough participants? Will it rain (this is a very legitimate question in Brussels)? Will people come to our stand? Will people participate in our quiz? How will the other organizers act like?
Project 668 is one of the official organisers of the first European Interns’ Day which will take place on Friday 18th of July in Brussels. This massive event will bring together participants from all over Europe to stand up and call for quality internships and job opportunities for young unemployed people.
