Exchange regarding policy, gender equality issues, image of Labor Unions in Baltic States, its improvement and involvement of new members are the core issues for Labor youth today.
These and other topics were discussed in groups, so every participant could get a stage for his ideas. Groups will also looked into political work of youth, for example, involvement in the political process through right to vote from 16 years of age in local elections, etc. Exchange regarding the situation and problems of youth in labor market in all three Baltic States, which share similar historical and political development gave a push for new ideas and activities.
Not to forget also building and keeping up with individual contacts between labor youth, where the change of membership is high. Activities of Unions can change the situation of employees in a positive way. Distribution of knowledge about workers' basic rights is very important and helpful for young people and immigrants.
