The 2014 Youth Employment Convention sought to put young people at the heart of the 2015 general election. The legacy report is comprised of 25 short essays from contributors to the Convention, all experts in their field. It describes why youth unemployment remains a systemic issue despite an improving economy and makes the case for policy changes that will support the skills and employment needs of our most valuable national asset – our young people. It is hoped that that the report and the contributors' recommendations will influence the manifestos of all the major political parties.
