Today we celebrate World Youth Skills Day with a diverse round of WorldSkills Champions from all over the world. UNESCO-UNEVOC dedicates this day to the theme “Skills for a resilient Youth” and alongside this topic we will discuss different ways to build resilience in these challenging times.

What is World Youth Skills Day?
The UN designated day seeks to generate greater awareness of and discussion on the importance of technical, vocational education, and training and the development of other skills relevant to both local and global economies. It is hoped that it will contribute to reducing unemployment and underemployment among the youth across the globe. It will highlight youth skills development to draw attention to the critical need for marketable skills.
WorldSkills will support this globally important topic via the broad spread of activities and initiatives in our six focus areas all aimed at raising the profile and recognition of skilled people, and showing how important skills are in achieving economic growth and personal success. Inspiring, educating, and developing youth is an integral part of this.
