The UN-designated World Youth Skills Day seeks to generate greater awareness of and discussion on the importance of technical, vocational education, and training and the development of other skills relevant to both local and global economies. It is hoped that it will contribute to reducing unemployment and underemployment among youth across the globe. It will also highlight youth skills development to draw attention to the critical need for marketable skills.

See the United Nations website for further information.

Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we’ll be looking at issues relating to the digital skills of young people in support of the day. Come back nearer the time to read more.
