We recently came across this blog post on Europeanpublicaffairs.eu and believe that it is worth sharing also here on our blog. Frank Markovic gives a very good overview and analysis of what has been going on in the area of youth unemployment in the EU, which policies have been put into place and what should be worked on in the future.
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.

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.
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.
Project 668 recently participated in the awards ceremony of the European Charlemagne Youth Prize 2014 as one of the 28 national winners of this year’s competition. A representative of the Project was invited to the Winners’ Week, which took place in Aachen (Germany) from the 26th to the 29th of May.
