This meeting was the occasion to present the results of canvassing and surveying exercises to explore citizens’ preferences towards employment programs. We also focused on the local developments in EU countries that have taken place this year, and we engaged in a lively discussion. 

What is needed now at the local, national and EU levels to achieve job stability for decent conditions? What potential is yet to be tapped? What can we learn from other countries? And what jobs are needed to improve local economies and support communities and beyond?

Local Employment initiatives have seen some exciting developments in the public and political debate. A broad, EU-wide, conjoint solution may be more relevant than ever, given the need for economic stability, growth in the right sectors, and the demand for solutions that put people first.

The project put forward the “Zero Unemployment Territories” approach and the idea of local employment initiatives backed by EU financing as one of the potential innovations in employment policy.
