Campaign to ban unpaid internships
The European Youth Forum will talk about their campaign to #BanUnpaidInternships and why they are fighting for legislation to ensure interns receive a living wage and can access social protection. This online session will provide a space to discuss the situation of unpaid internships across Europe and explore how young people can mobilise in their own countries.
