Our colleague Márton Medgyesi gave a presentation at the "Perspectives on Youth" seminar organised by the European Commission and the Council of Europe on 9 November in Budapest. During his lecture, he presented the results of his own research within the UPLIFT project and the impact of the local labour market, housing and social services on the well-being of young people in European cities. The seminar brought together participants from 35 countries to discuss youth employment difficulties, housing and financial literacy issues and to look for targeted policy practices and tools to address youth issues in the context of the European Year of Youth 2022.
