Project results and impact

15 July 2021, online, 10:30 am to 1:30 pm CET

UNESCO invites you to the second and Final YEM Regional Forum on 15 July, to highlight project results and impact, based on the implementation of its three key components in the region:

  • Strengthening national systems for skills needs anticipation and assessment
  • Improving quality and attractiveness of TVET pathways, especially for women
  • Developing regional cooperation in the field of TVET
The forum will also mark World Youth Skills Day, and include representatives and direct beneficiaries from the participating countries; relevant TVET stakeholders and partners; regional and international TVET experts, and youth representatives and organizations.

The YEM project is funded by the European Union and implemented by UNESCO from 2018-2021, supporting youth employment and entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean region by improving skills anticipation and TVET systems.
