Event description
The World Bank estimates that only 400 million of the 1 billion young people entering the labour market in the next 10 years, will find work

About this Event

Work matters. It is not just about making a living. Young people want to make a contribution, they want to be respected in their communities. But many of the world's youth will never have a 'job' as understood in the developed world. Hafez Ghanem, Vice-President for Africa, World Bank, will discuss its approach to this epidemic.

17:15 - 18:30 Lecture

18:30 - 19:00 Drinks reception

Lecture will start promptly, and seats allocated on a first come first served basis.

When the lecture theatre reaches full capacity, attendees arriving after this point will be directed to an overflow room with a live relay.

This lecture is in association with the Vice-Chancellor's Lecture Series on Sustainable Development - "Globalisation, Sustainability and the Power of Ideas".
