Alongside issues such as gender justice, climate change and a solution to the unrest in the Middle East, the Lutheran World Federation Council examined the rising issue of youth unemployment at its June 2013 meeting in Geneva. The council urged countries to promote economic policies and fiscal incentives that combat youth unemployment. Some 75 million young adults are without gainful employment worldwide, said LWF General Secretary Martin Junge. See www.lutheranworld.org/news for more information about the event.
