Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit 2021
The International Labour Organization (ILO) predicts that if the right policies are put in place, transitioning to a greener economy could create 24 million new jobs globally by 2030. Ensuring that young people can take advantage of these opportunities will require rapid upskilling through changes in higher education and expansion of corporate training programs. Many Southeast Asian countries are leading the way in this area and offer lessons for all of us in the expansion of climate action (SDG 11) and the potential of green jobs to accelerate progress towards employment for all (SDG 8).
Hosted by FHI 360, with the ILO.
