World Youth Skills Day has become an official (UN day) starting from 2015 and raises awareness about the importance of youth skills development.
The need to campaign and promote World Youth Skills Day is more important than ever before. Despite the youth employment rate increasing compared to the previous year, the number of young people without a job remains over 10 percent in many countries (OECD, 2016) Perhaps more alarming, the number of young people out-of-school and not in education, employment and training (NEETs) is increasing.
At the same time, young people are also faced with the question how they will address their country’s current and future challenges. The 2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development calls for a shift towards more sustainable and equitable economies and societies, which will no doubt result in changes in the world of work and education.

WYSD is in line with the upcoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030, which propose two goals on education and skills for employment:

Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Goal 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
