“Lost Millennials” focuses on a regularly neglected group of the generation of Millennials: young people aged 25-29 who are neither in employment, education, or training (25+NEETs). The main objective of the initiative is to contribute to the successful economic integration of a generation which started their working life shortly after the economic crisis of 2008. Experiencing uncertainty and lack of security for work and well-being, Millennials are more likely to be inactive or in precarious jobs. This issue will be addressed through research, capacity-building and know-how exchange events, and engagement of policy-makers through the key principles of realistic planning, strong cooperation, diversity as an asset, flexibility, and consistency. “Lost Millennials” is a transnational effort, uniting organizations from 13 European countries: Bulgaria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Greece, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Austria, Iceland, Finland and Norway.
The Lost Millennials project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment.
