On November 29, 2013 the Stavros Niarchos Foundation is participating in the “Redesigning Welfare in the Mediterranean” Conference organized by Fondazione Cariplo and Compagnia di San Paolo.

The second meeting in the series takes a look at the Mediterranean countries - Portugal, Spain and Greece – who due to the current financial crisis are reexamining their social welfare structure and are moving ahead with implementing change. Moreover recognizing the importance of youth unemployment, an issue all Mediterranean countries are facing, the conference is also examining the proposal to kick off an EU-wide ‘Foundations for the Young Initiative’, meant to promote and coordinate foundations’ involvement in youth employment activities.
