UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference on youth and skills

© DR

This virtual conference will be looking to address the question on how Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) can tackle youth unemployment globally.
The 2-week discussion aims to collect knowledge, experiences, innovative ideas and promising practices in TVET which aim specifically at tackling youth unemployment. The discussion will look to identify the factors that promote youth employment, touching upon the role of entrepreneurship education and school-to-work transition. UNESCO-UNEVOC is calling for e-Forum members and the global TVET community to share their experiences, practices and concerns on this issue and is looking forward to hearing from policy makers, researchers, practitioners and of course the young people themselves.
