GAN August Newsletter, 2018

Updated: Jul 25, 2019

The past few months have been eventful as we continue to collaborate with our members, partners and the broader community to jointly pave the path towards “Skills for the Future. Jobs for the Future.” In this newsletter we unveil GAN's latest high-level supporter - (a King!) explore some of the hottest topics on digital skills, future of work, and innovative apprenticeship. At the country level, we divulge plans from our GAN National Networks (GNNs) as defined from our design thinking workshop during the International Labour Conference (ILC) and lead a national advocacy plan in France. Learn more about our awareness-raising work on a global and local level in this video clip here. French version. Spanish version.
