The European Pact4Youth

Signed in late 2015 by an initial group of signatories that included the European Parliament, business leaders and important European personalities in the field of Corporate Sustainability, including the Chairman of IMA Alberto Vacchi, Diana Bracco (Bracco Group and Sodalitas Foundation), Francesco Starace (Enel) and Marco Tronchetti Provera (Pirelli), the European Pact for Youth identifies in the School-Business Partnership, the main strategy for the inclusion and employability of young people.

Implementation of the Pact - led by Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, and Etienne Davignon, Chairman of CSR Europe - aims to achieve three objectives by the end of 2017: 1) to create 10,000 high quality partnerships between businesses and the education system; 2) to provide at least 100,000 new opportunities for integration into employment, training or apprenticeship; 3) to prepare a national action plan for each EU country to promote competitiveness and employability.
