#TVETYouthStories #WYSD2020

Schools and technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions around the world closed in massive numbers due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As young people showcased their adaptability and resilience despite the challenges, UNESCO-UNEVOC encouraged them to submit videos of how they were learning during lockdown. These stories were part of a campaign to mark World Youth Skills Day (WYSD) and highlight the importance of skills development for a resilient youth.
