Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 17:00 to 19:00

DSF and the European Students' Union (ESU) invites you to a debate about graduate unemployment and employability - the new buzzword in higher education. But what is employability really? and is this something we students need when facing the great wall of job seeking?

It is important that students define the problems and solutions of graduate unemployment. This is why DSF takes part in the ESU's SAGE-project, (Student Advancement of Graduate Employability). Here student representatives from, Denmark, Hungary, Spain and Finland, visit each other to investigate different perspectives on employability.

The debate followed DSF's board meeting, which takes place in CBS from 12 am -5 pm. The debate will be in English, and it will also possible to as questions in Danish.

There will be coffee, tea and snacks and after the debate, we will serve dinner for everyone present.
