The persistence of the economic crisis coupled with social inequalities have led to a deepening alienation of young people, a decline of social values and reduced belief in bottom-up social change.

Over two days and focusing on early school leavers (day 1) and young prospective social entrepreneurs (day 2), this international event will push barriers for European and national policy making and practice through the presentation of evidence-based solutions, and by allowing the voices that are rarely heard to lead on debates that matter. The conference will launch the findings of our Erasmus funded projects Drop-In (Day 1) and PromYSE (Day 2).
