Youth Dialogue on Investing in Sustainable, Inclusive and Resilient Future of Work for Youth
In the context of the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, Making Cents International’s Youth Economic Opportunities (YEO) 2030 Initiative, in partnership with the International Labour Organization (ILO), are co-hosting a youth dialogue on investing in a transformative future of work for young people.
The online youth dialogue puts particular focus on gathering young people’s ideas, views, and perspectives from around the world with different backgrounds and experiences. Young people aged 16-35 interested to learn about major trends in the future of work, Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG) on “Decent work and economic growth” and other related SDGs, networks and opportunities to shape policy recommendations are therefore particularly encouraged to join.
The event is based on the 2022 Global Employment Trends for Youth (GET Youth) report. The publication analyses recent labour market trends while also focusing on key themes in the world of work concerning young people globally.
Based on the 2022 edition of the report, the youth dialogue will focus on two ‘economies’ with considerable potential to create productive jobs for young workers in a transforming future: the green economy and the digital economy. The two economies will be further explored in the designated breakout sessions. Outcomes of the discussion will consequently help shape follow up actions of the GET Youth 2022 report and inform the 2023 global youth economic opportunities summit of YEO 2030.
