GYEOS Live Track Event: Global Context Matters
On August 20th from 9:00 am – 11:30 am EST, the YEO Network invites you to join the second in a series of at least five (5) online Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit (GYEO) events that follow technical tracks in skills development, workforce readiness, self-employment and entrepreneurship, and cross-cutting topics such as gender, conflict, systems change, policy, and more.
The Global Context Matters track will host a series of discussions and deep-dive breakout sessions with young people, development practitioners, policymakers, and funders on the power of engaging youth as we respond and rebuild from COVID-19. Youth around the world are leading efforts to respond to the impact of COVID-19 in their communities, from tacking gender-based violence to the environment to combating misinformation and holding governments accountable. We have an opportunity to make youth engagement central to the post-COVID-19 response: how do we take advantage of that? What is the role of young people in a local, national, and global COVID-19 response? And how can we support young people’s economic and social inclusion as we rebuild in a post-pandemic world?
