On 13 September 2015, in Parc Léopold (Brussels) the rain held off just long enough for 11 brave teams to go for a little run. The 55 participants in the first ever Run for Employment each had to run 1km before handing over a symbolic briefcase to the next member of their team. Children and adults, women and men, seasoned runners and struggling newbies, everyone stepped up and gave it a go. The prize? A 50€ voucher for The Black Sheep bar…and eternal glory.
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!
Our team member Bogdan writes about the necessary measures on education and training that need to be taken at the European Union level in order to create growth and jobs.
Written by Lidija Globokar, Co-Founder & General Manager of Project 668
I’m concerned. And I’m not talking about the high youth unemployment rates in Europe. I’m concerned about the future. What does all this mean? How will the European society look like in 20, 30 years? Or even 10? Will there be only one “lost generation” or will we even lose more? And what exactly do we lose? Everyone’s talking about economy, numbers, crisis, growth. Who’s talking about dignity, re-definition of work, social responsibility and values?
Mladiinfo International has met with Lidija Globokar in Skopje, Macedonia as she was guest to one our event. Today we deliver to you our interview with her where she reflects on her professional development and her work and engagement with Project 668, a professional development platform for current and former European Union trainees.
I recently took a MOOC on Coursera about Career Enhancement. They’ve got great resources, but I didn’t see the following ideas shared. So here they are:
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.
Project 668 has won the first prize in the online competition Europe Needs you 4 JOB-Creation. The award comprises a week-long event from the 15th to the 22nd of June in Skopje, Macedonia, where a number of workshops, interactive lectures and discussions will take place. A representative of Project 668 has been invited to participate in the event on behalf of the team.
