Toolkits for all: the answer to the unemployment youth?
I am in the Earth Summit Rio+20 and yesterday I was able to attend a meeting in which ILO, UNEP, UNFPA and WB were present and the title of the panel was "Green jobs: a opportunity for youth" and I was very excited to be there but as soon as they start talking I change my mind.
Despite everyone agrees in youth is +-50% of the world population and that most of these are living in developing countries they appear to have proposals for another youth reality.
They are working in a toolkit proposal "to better understand the transition to a green economy" and they invited John, a young boy from Kenya, who presents their entrepreneur experience in his school and it was really interesting but no one goes further the toolkit proposal.
No one in the Panel talks about funding, follow up, monitoring results, etc. and if there were not enough, also the G77 in the formal negotiations are dealing with the concepts green jobs vs decent jobs, why we can go further and take both?
