Is a global UN celebration to raise awareness on how important it is to give young people the necessary skills for employment, quality work and entrepreneurship. And since it has been an opportunity of dialogue between youth, vocational education and training institutions, firms, employers, unions, and policymakers.
The pandemic has disrupted a lot of these processes, especially those concerned with learning and empowerment, as schools all the way to TVET have halted, slowed down and entered an unfamiliar territory, as in parallel the digitalisation of learning is still on its experimental phase and for sure does not allow equal access to all; as well as the job market at entry level, major life-cycle transitions are made difficult when not impossible. With rising youth unemployment and increase of NEETs (not in employment, education or training) since 2020 on a steady growth, 273 million in 2021 alone. This is a stern and important reminder also to companies like ours, when it comes to design and deliver our educational and empowerment offer, and to take into consideration the competences needed by youth to contribute to their well-being as well as this planet’s.
