Pegasus, the International Campaign for the United Nations to declare 2019-2028 as the Youth Employment Decade, was one of the key protagonists at the XVII Latin-American Conference of Youth Ministers and Leaders. Within the framework of the ‘side events’ that focused on the challenges of youth employment, a delegation of the Novia Salcedo Foundation explained the reasons that had led it to promote an ambitious initiative to raise awareness, generate debate and propose solutions to engage States in an issue, unemployment, that affects more than 1,200 million youths worldwide.

Helena Orella and Natalia García were responsible for transmitting the philosophy of Pegasus and encouraging the representatives of the youth organizations present in the auditorium of the Museum of Human Evolution in Burgos to join the campaign. Asked by those present, Orella stressed that King Philip VI has expressed his support for this initiative. In addition, during the closing ceremony, the Secretary of State for Social Services and Equality, Susana Camarero, asserted that the Spanish Government would support Novia Salcedo on this project, which it launched one year ago.
