GENEVA (ILO News) – The International Labour Organization (ILO) has launched a video contest for young people (from 18 to 29 years) to show how the global jobs crisis is affecting their lives.

Three winners will be invited to Geneva (all expenses paid) to attend the ILO Youth Employment Forum, to be held from 23-25 May 2012, where they will have the opportunity to present their videos.

The Youth Employment Forum will gather more than one hundred young people who are engaged in promoting decent work for youth. The Forum will provide a platform for young people to share their experiences and views on the current employment situation, as well as to discuss successful initiatives that create more and better jobs for youth.
