World Youth Skills Day

World Youth Skills Day is celebrated every year on 15th July. Strictly speaking, it denotes not just one day but an entire week dedicated to the acquisition and development of skills in young people. But why? Young people constantly need to adapt to new requirements and challenges. According to generationunlimited.org, as many as 85 % of the jobs that will exist in 2030 have not yet been “invented”, i.e. they will develop in the future in response to changes in society and the workplace environment. Today, the most important skill a young person must possess is the ability to learn new skills.
