The active inclusion of young people: Rotterdam
Rotterdam has seen a significant increase in youth unemployment in the last few years. Between July 2009 and July 2010, youth unemployment went up by 11%; and between March 2010 and March 2011 it went up by 18% while the overall unemployment rate only increased by 3.1%. Lowerr-skilled young people were particularly hard hit, as were those on flexible contracts, as these are the first jobs to go when companies cut back. Initiatives to address youth unemployment in Rotterdam are being developed within the framework of regional and national acttion plans, as part of the Dutch National Reform Programme on preventing youth unemployment. Initiatives are described in this report.
