Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit
2020 GYEO Virtual Series and Online Learning Content
The annual GYEO Summit theme and learning agenda is supported by four interconnected technical tracks designed to advance learning and collaboration for our community. These tracks support topics on skills development, work readiness, and self-employment and entrepreneurship, as well as cross-cutting issues like youth engagement, gender, conflict, systems-change and policy; scale; technology; migration; climate and environment; rural development and agriculture; and monitoring, evaluation and learning (MERL), among others.
From July through October there will be five online gatherings that reflect the GYEO technical tracks. The forums will supported by a deep-dive thematic content including live or pre-recorded videos by GYEO partners, and related information sharing online and via the GYEO newsletter.
What kinds of skills, programs and policies can better prepare and support young people for self-employment or entrepreneurship, in the growing gig and informal economies?
How will the changing economy in a post-pandemic world impact and be shaped by critical factors like gender, conflict, migration, environment, and policy?
How do we prepare youth to meet the demands of today’s rapidly transforming global economy, and what is the role of education and training providers, business, and governments to help young people gain more access to opportunity?
How do we build a foundation of skills for youth that supports their long-term social and economic success as well as resilience in a changing world of work?
