We took the European challenge to Delft

JouwDelft & Co.

  • 10 European cities (Delft, Chartres, Speyer, Roskilde, and others)

  • 4 youngsters and 1 policy advisor per city

  • Local politicians, social workers and youngsters

  • 65 participants

We came up with innovations

Just a handful of the advises

  • make internships more accessible to all students (higher and lower education)

  • stimulate companies to pay their interns just enough to be self-sufficient

  • make short internships available to let a student orientate on different jobs

  • support youngsters to start their own business by setting up incubators

  • incorporate entrepreneurship into the education system

  • communicate more with youngsters about all the different possibilities

  • focus on educating youngsters in English, other cultures and Europe

  • organize exchanges for students at a very young age to ensure their language skills, European mind-set, which ensures mobility on the job market

youngsters are lazy ‘couch potatoes’
