Unleashing the potential of young people to succeed in the future world of work.
Across the globe, the pandemic has had a particularly severe impact on youth employment owing to disruptions to education, job layoffs and income losses and increased barriers to job market entry. For those young people who are still pursuing education, the pandemic is likely to result in unprecedented new inequalities upon graduation. Despite those hurdles, young people continue to find ways to engage, support each other and driving forward ideas, innovations and movements. So, how do we unleash the potential of young people and help bring forward inclusive youth voices ?
