Unemployment is one of the biggest economical and social problems on the earth and the group most effected by this problem is the youth. As a matter of fact, the biggest source of worry of the youth is the future and related unemployment concerns. We have selected the Mediterranean and Southeastern Regions specifically that lives this problem closely.
We aim to carry out a field application within the framework of structured dialogue with strategy of movement from local to national by discussing youth unemployment and future concerns with the submission of the proposals with a solution to these problems. Diyarbakır Businesswomen Association and Turkish Entrepreneurship and Business Life Confederation, will be our supporters during our many strategic work in this project.
As for the general framework, our project has three stages in total. Firstly, a survey study will be carried out with 400 young people who are university students at this religions who will answer the survey with the help of academicians, also university students and newly graduated people who will answer the survey online. In light of the survey results, the second stage will be held as strategic plan meetings for two days in both Adana and Gaizantep, with people ages 18-30 who will be youth leaders that are members of decision making groups (student clubs, student councils, student associations), current university students and newly graduated youth employees. The meetings will be organised for these 3 groups seperately. In the strategic plan meetings, 204 young people will meet up in total and discussion platforms will be created. These 156 young people will consist of four participants for each three seperated groups (youth leaders, current university students and newly graduated youth employees) from each major city both in the Mediterranean and Southeastern Regions. The ones in the Meditarrenean Region will get together in Adana. The ones in the Souteastern Region will get together in Adana. Lastly, a three-day Summit of Outcome will be organised with the outputs that will be comprised during focus group meetings. The Summit will take place in Adana with 96 young people from 17 different cities (all cities in the Mediterranean and Southeastern Regions) and the representatives from mechanisms of decision making (university representations, provincial employment board representation, chamber of industry representations, trade association representations) will join.
The Summit of Outcome aims to form a strategic policy document towards reducing youth unemployment and avoiding future concerns of the youth so as to submit the strategic policy document to the mechanisms of decision making. Also, increasing motivation among youth so that they will look to the future with more confidence is the goal because raising awareness about the need of target planning concerning the future will have been provided among youths as a result of the project.
