    2018 Theme & Technical Tracks

    The 2018 GYEO Summit theme is Generation 2030: Learning and Earning in a Changing World of Work. The theme will build on last year’s focus on the future of work for youth in developing contexts, and move from understanding  broad trends to a deeper examination of critical issues impacting young people’s social and economic inclusion in a changing world of work.

    We will explore topics such as: behavioral skills and holistic programming; future skills and bridging the digital divide; emerging industries for youth economic opportunity; talent acquisition and work-based learning; self-employment in the growing gig economy; youth entrepreneurship in a changing world of work; youth economic opportunity in rural economies and agriculture, and more.

    Recognizing the critical importance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for young people, we will also link this year’s agenda to Goals 4,5,8, and 17, and explore how our collective efforts can help us meet these targets by 2030.

    The  Summit theme is supported by an annual strategic learning agenda organized around four Summit technical tracks:

    Building a Foundation: How do we build a foundation of skills for youth that supports their long-term social and economic success in a changing world of work?

     

     

    Livelihoods through Self-Employment: What kinds of skills, programs and policies can prepare and support young people for self-employment, or entrepreneurship, in the growing gig and informal economies?

    Global Context Matters: How will the future of work both inform, and be shaped by critical factors like gender, conflict, migration, climate change, and policy environment?

    Cross-cutting topics to be addressed across technical tracks at the Summit are Gender; Scale; Technology; Financial Inclusion; Conflict; Rural Economies and Agriculture; Monitoring, Evaluation, Research & Learning (MERL).
