LKDF Annual Meeting 2020 goes virtual!

June 4, 2020

The world is currently facing an unprecedented crisis that is affecting social and economic systems alike. We must, therefore, think ahead and help countries recover and rebuild sustainably. Under the theme Green Skills for a Sustainable Future and through a combination of interactive sessions, virtual booths, workshops, and networking opportunities, the LKDF Annual Meeting 2020 will provide a virtual platform to discuss the future of skills. In particular, how public and private sector partners can work together to reduce the mismatch between supply and demand. The challenge lies in the content and quality of TVET programmes in many countries as they do not always match the private sector’s demands. As a result, graduates cannot find jobs while employers cannot find skilled personnel.

For the past years, the Learning and Knowledge Development Facility (LKDF) has been building a culture of sharing for inclusive and sustainable practices in the skills development landscape in cooperation with public, private, and development partners to equip young people with technical skills and contribute to shared prosperity. Today, we need you to take the LKDF to the next level.

Join us 5-9 October 2020 and help us to answer the following questions.

  • What are these green skills?
  • Which industrial sectors are looking for ‘green experts’ and ‘green technicians’?
  • Are educational systems and TVET programmes equipped to develop green skills?
  • Will the digital revolution help develop green skills?
