The celebrations of World Youth Skills Day 2022 will highlight the ongoing focus on the Transforming Education Summit (September 2022), and contribute to the work being done under its Thematic Action Track "Learning and skills for life, work, and sustainable development". The summit is a youth-inspired global event of major importance for the future of millions of young people; it is prepared by, with and for youth.
The "Transforming youth skills for the future" global event is being co-organized by the Permanent Missions of Portugal and Sri Lanka to the United Nations, together with UNESCO, ILO and the Office of the Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth. It will bring together youth, governments, UN agencies, private sector and civil society representatives to analyse the impact of current crises on youth across the world, and discuss how young people can quickly adapt to the demands of an ever-changing world.
