Kosovo has one of the youngest populations in Europe, and the youth a great asset to this country. The last decade has seen a significant increase in the number of young people attending university. Finding a good job upon graduation is an important milestone for young people, but the transition to employment in Kosovo often comes with many challenges.
Finding solutions to improve employment opportunities for young people will be a key driver for Kosovo’s development, and the World Bank is supporting the country in this agenda.
We believe that to find the best solutions we need to listen to young people. We want to better understand their aspirations and challenges in their transition from education to employment and bring their voices to the national dialogue on how to provide better educational and economic opportunities for Kosovo’s youth.
To all university students in Kosovo, we want to hear about your aspirations, hopes and fears about finding a job.
