This conference is connected to FEPS’ flagship youth engagement project: the Millennial Dialogue and with two other initiatives from FEPS: the Digital Footprint project consisting of national surveys made in different European countries  (NL, UK, SE, AT & DE) and a new book entitled “The digital economy and the single market – Employment Prospects and Working Conditions in Europe”.

Despite its inherent merits, the EU’s Digital Single Market initiative might not properly address some highly relevant employment and social consequences. This debate will give the opportunity to discuss the consequences in regards with working conditions, employment, social protection, regulatory environment, digital skills and how the Millennial generation perceives today’s digitisation forces.
