As result of a project we have asked the University of Applied Sciences in The Hague (the Netherlands) to organise every year in May a seminar for students in their third year of the study ‘Business Accounting’. That is about their future – and to give information about the current situation on the Labour Market, national and international. The aim is to motivate them to look in the final (fourth) year for creative solutions to enter the labour market – to make an own living, maybe not directly but for sure after a few years.

There are contributions by experts from the Netherlands, Denmark and Germany. Besides them we as Leido are asking representatives of organisations in our network to talk about recent developments in the world economy and about the consequences of them for the youth-(un)­employment.

The seminar is now part of the study programme. Leido is co-organiser of this event.

Actors Involved

  • The Hague University of Applied Sciences
  • Leido Academy

Target audiences

Students/professors in higher education.


The impact is important for students, entering the labour market – to have them prepared for an uncertain situation. There are ideas for developing an elective, based on this activity.
