Young people have the transformative power to shape a sustainable and inclusive future. Yet, more than 270 million young people aged 15-24 are not in any form of employment, education or training (NEET).
In today's rapidly changing world, providing young people with relevant and marketable skills is essential for their personal development, employability, and contribution to sustainable development. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) has a pivotal role to play in equipping young people with the necessary skills to smoothly transition into the job market and to actively engage in their communities and societies.
The Youth Declaration on Transforming Education highlighted that young people are at the forefront of pioneering innovations, mobilizing peers and communities, and advocating for universal and quality education. Youth skills development is also at the heart of UNESCO’s Strategy for TVET 2022-2029 and its mission to transform TVET for successful and just transitions.
Ahead of World Youth Skills Day, we encourage you to join the global activities to celebrate the importance of empowering young people to unlock their full potential, contribute meaningfully to their communities, and become catalysts for change.
