Winners of the UNESCO-UNEVOC Skills in Action Photo Competition 2019

UNESCO-UNEVOC invited photographers from around the world to capture unique moments highlighting Skills in Action. The more than 350 submissions focused on how TVET is empowering young people in their communities according to three priority areas:

  • Encouraging youth employment and entrepreneurship – showing how youth are able to put acquired skills into practice, leading to securing jobs or starting their own businesses.
  • Promoting equity and gender equality – showing how access to skills development should be for all young people and how skills development can overcome gender stereotypes and inequality issues.
  • Facilitating transition to sustainable economies and societies - showing how young people with greening and digital (ICT) skills can help build sustainable societies and help address climate change and sustainable development related issues.
We are proud to announce the winners of the Skills in Action Photo Competition 2019.
