    Making European youth resilient and ready for the future

    Therese Noorlander, Sustainability Director, Coca-Cola Europe & Salvatore Nigro, CEO, JA Europe

    As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, its impact grows across the globe. Thousands of businesses, of all sizes, are threatened and entire parts of the economy such as the tourism industry and the hospitality sectors are in jeopardy. In this challenging context, businesses and individuals’ resilience is being put to a test. 

    The JA Europe network and Coca-Cola in Europe and its bottling partners have teamed up over the past years to develop and implement entrepreneurship and employability education programs that contribute to helping the younger generation to build their resilience, adapt to the ongoing challenges and be better prepared for their future professional lives. 

    This is our shared mission: prepare young people for this journey of development, provide them with knowledge, attitudes and skills for life and improve their access to entrepreneurship.
