World Youth Skills Day, observed annually on 15 July, focuses on the strategic importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work and entrepreneurship. Under the theme Reimagining Youth Skills Post-Pandemic, World Youth Skills Day 2021 is co-organized by the Permanent Missions to the United Nations of Portugal and Sri Lanka, UNESCO, ILO and the Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth.

Manager: World Skills Namibia, Sens Shoolongo explained that the event will celebrate the resilience and creativity of youth through the coronavirus pandemic. Participants will take stock of how TVET systems have adapted to the pandemic and recession, think of how those systems can participate in the recovery, and imagine priorities they should adopt for the post-COVID-19 world.

“A first interactive panel will discuss skills that are needed today and those that will be needed in the future, and a second panel will reflect on TVET stakeholder partnerships for scaling up youth skills development and employment, says Shoolongo.

The panel discussion seeks to assess the situation of young people regarding skills and work during and after the COVID-19 pandemic; learn how they have been living through the crisis; highlight success stories of youth innovation and resilience
