UN CSocD 60: LP4Y SIDE EVENT
Post pandemic: how do corporations act for a resilient recovery through Youth inclusion?
February 10th 2022 - 8:30am to 9:45am (NY Time) - online webinar
LP4Y holds a special consultative status at the ECOSOC and will participate in the 60th
session of the Commission for Social Development, focusing on “Inclusive and resilient
recovery from COVID-19 for sustainable livelihoods, well-being and dignity for all”
Convinced that non-profit and corporate ecosystems have to collaborate for change, LP4Y acted, from the beginning, jointly with companies to find a more effective response to exclusion and precarity issues. To address the additional burden of the most excluded ones after this pandemic, and act for an inclusive and resilient recovery, corporations have a key role to play for achieving the 2030 Agenda and participating in poverty eradication.
Youth are the future change makers. Since 2009, LP4Y has accompanied out of school Youth, street Youth, very young mothers, Youth with disability, inmates, etc. These young people have benches of opportunities. Yet, the challenge is to enable them by giving them access to the right skills to perform at best in the future at work and in the society. Human and digital capabilities are essential for tomorrow’s world. In order to reach our objectives on a global scale, the private sector must be involved Internships, apprenticeships, incentives - as no government nor the non profit sector can address these issues on their own.
Our side event will highlight actions from corporations towards underserved Youth inclusion, and their vision about work in the future. This webinar aims at encouraging the corporate sector to engage, and show to others that, for sustainable livelihoods, well-being and dignity for all, companies are essential.
Kevin Frey, CEO of Generation Unlimited, will join LP4Y’s event, focusing on how corporations act for a resilient recovery through Youth inclusion post pandemic, with various other actors from the private sector, on February 10th. Please register on the following link
