UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference: Skills for a resilient youth

6 to 14 July 2020

Every year on 15 July, the global community celebrates World Youth Skills Day. World Youth Skills Day 2020 took place in a challenging context.

Prior to the pandemic, young people aged 15-24 were two to three times more likely than adults to be un- or under-employed and often faced a prolonged school-to-work transition period. In post-COVID-19 societies, as young people seek employment and are called upon to contribute to the recovery effort, they will need to be equipped with the relevant skills for today as well as the competencies to successfully manage evolving challenges and adapt to future disruptions.

The virtual conference on Skills for a Resilient Youth was held from 6-14 July 2020. The conference sought to gather knowledge, insights, experiences and practices from the international TVET community to understand how the pandemic is affecting youth and how TVET teachers, institutions and government agencies are responding.
