The Intenational Labour Organisation launches a video contest to show how the global jobs crisis is affecting young people

ILO is an international organisation whose main aims are to promote rights at work, support decent employment opportunities and enhance social protection on work related issues. The organization has launched a video contest to give you the opportunity to share with the others how the global jobs crisis is affecting your life.

Maybe you are finishing your studies and feel that you will face problems to find a suitable job, you lost or are about to lose your current job or you have to work under poor conditions. If you feel that the youth employment crisis influence you significantly and you have an ideas to tell, don’t hesitate to share them with others. Create and original video with or without words, upload it to your own YouTube channel and send a link to the International Labour Organisation.

The video should be in one of 3 official languages of ILO (English, French or Spanish) or with subtitles in one of these languages and should not be longer than 2 minutes. Entries must be submitted by 10 April 2012.

Three winners will be offered an all expenses paid trip to Geneva to attend the ILO Youth Employment Forum from 23-25 May 2012 and present their videos. The Youth Employment Forum will gather more than one hundred young people who are engaged in promoting decent work for youth. They will be sharing their experiences and views on the current employment situation and discussing successful initiatives that create more and better jobs.
