ups and downs





2012 Q3 and on


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
  • 6 days
  • November 2012

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

One of the innovations in practice

Youth Unemployment

‘enough’ jobs in the city of Delft

youngsters are lazy ‘couch potatoes’

10% job searching 90% Facebook


Work in YourDelft

Steps to social innovation within this project

  • Step 1: inform youngsters about local job openings through Facebook
  • Step 2: connect local businesses actively with youngsters looking for a job
  • Step 3: support youngsters in finding a ‘real’ job

Social Innovation!

Modern media don’t make it innovative

Taking the responsibility, that’s the innovation!


A new youth congress

Organised by youngsters from Holland

  • Youth Unemployment & Movement of youngsters to cities
  • November 2013
  • North of Holland
  • Max. 5 youngsters per delegation
  • Around 12 delegations
  • On-site costs covered and €50,- of the travel costs per person

Still looking for delegations…
