Innovation in Employment Governance for Young People

17.09.2015 to 18.09.2015


The National Agency for Young People Employment of Senegal (ANPEJ) and WAPES are organizing a conference about “Innovation in Employment Governance for Young People” that will be held at King Fahd Palace Hotel in Dakar from 17 till 18 September.  We are glad to invite you to participate in it.

This event will give you the opportunity to reflect on African Public Employment Services’ capacity to innovate, review systems and supply services in order to be both: in accordance with key issues and flexible enough to adapt to changing circumstances.

In attachment you'll find the programme and practicalities. As you can see, we are still looking for speakers that could share their experiences concerning innovation with the audience.

If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact us.


You can register for the conference by filling the online registration form before 28 August.  If you are experiencing difficulties to open this link or for any other question or comment, please let us know.
