Young Human Capital

A Stream on “The Young Human Capital and their Mission to be Productive:
Their Challenges and Issues”
as part of the 13th Annual International Conference on Psychology
27-30 May 2019, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences

The Psychology Unit of ATINER is organising a Stream on “The Young Human Capital and their Mission to be Productive: Their Challenges and Issues”, 27-30 May 2019, Athens, Greece as part of the 13th Annual International Conference on Psychology sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences.

The aim of the stream is to discuss issues concerning today’s young human capital and the challenges they face to achieve social responsibility, in order to become productive and be active members of their socioeconomic community from young age. Gary Becker (1964) and Herzberg (2000), winners of the Nobel Laureate in Economics, stipulate that the Human Capital most important job related skills have to be built within the family. They explained their scientific point of view demonstrating the connection between the first live stages of the future working man and the community leaders. Several researchers and scientists such as I/O Psychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Social Workers, Criminologists etc., are trying to understand how poor school performance is linked with the young human capital ending on the streets or getting involved with illegal activities. In contemporary family’s structure and evolution as a social system, the young human capital is facing new difficulties during their most productive school years, from pre to high-school. To analyze these situations that do not just affect the socioeconomic development of young people, it is important for professionals to engage into sincere dialogues, favoring the exchange of knowledge that would reveal possible solutions. The discussion should motivate the scientific community to continue working toward the development of a society that will inspire their Young Human Capital in becoming productive and successful, starting already in the first community they are part of, their family. You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.
