In her Opening Address, Dr. Mmantsetsa Marope, Director Division for Basic Learning and Skills Development, UNESCO highlighted youth unemployment as "a threat to principles dearly guarded by UNESCO such as equity and social justice, social cohesion, youth empowerment on multiple fronts,(…) inclusive and sustainable development." Panel discussions focused on sharing national and regional perspectives on strategies and initiatives that promote greening TVET and promising practices which address youth employment challenges in the region and beyond. As part of these sessions, eight promising practices were presented ranging from ICT-enabled career guidance to eco-entrepreneurship. Other sessions focused on interregional exchange and the role of regional and international organizations in shaping global policies for TVET. Day three involved a special session for UNEVOC Network Members as well as a study tour to the Incheon Campus of Korea Polytechnics and the Global Institute for Transferring Skills (GIFTS) as part of the Human Resource Development Service Korea (HRD).
Mr Shyamal Majumdar, Head of UNESCO-UNEVOC concluded the conference with an outlook to an international follow-up conference to be facilitated by UNESCO-UNEVOC in Bonn, Germany in 2014.
