GAN Global will create partnerships with some of their members/partners to showcase original Instagram projects that are focus on some of the topics associated with work based learning activities and where different communities will be featured at the workplace such as vulnerable youth, parents who return to work after a period of leave, apprentices, entrepreneurs…etc.
In 2019 GAN Global will feature the OIJ Instagram project Top 2030 that is focused especifically on skills and youth leadership in support of the 2030 Agenda. SkillingNow will feature 9 young entrepreneurs who are transforming their ecosystem through their initiatives and actions.
We will organize Twitter Summits, virtual conferences that takes place on Twitter, featuring both keynotes and research presentations, but the talks will be delivered via a series of tweets. The virtual conference will promote open debate where everyone can follow, ask questions, and take part in the discussions. The conference “Chair” will tweet out the conference schedule and other announcements about the conference, and on the day, share all presentations.
The world of work is changing rapidly, driven by a series of megatrends – globalization, technology, demographics and climate change. These trends affect the composition of the workforce, the nature of tasks, the way work is organized, and they are creating new opportunities and roles that were unforeseen even a decade ago. Unlocking these opportunities to the benefit of all stakeholders requires a proactive and collective response by government, businesses and individuals of all ages to continuously build the skills needed to meet evolving labor market demands; a window of opportunity exists today for us to understand and proactively shape how we respond.
The debate about skills, and how and when to acquire them, is now a constant drumbeat with a regular flow of publications and conferences on the topic featuring leading global consultancies, international organizations, thought-leaders, businesses and governments. Yet, there are still more questions than answers and numerous potential scenarios. SkillingNow aims to open up the discussion by providing a platform for an interactive, global dialogue, engaging people from diverse sectors and backgrounds in an exchange about building the skills we need for a future of good work through work-based learning.
We are grateful to our SkillingNow Steering Committee for their time, creativity and precious ideas in developing the concepts for this interactive campaign and the continued engagement and support throughout the year.
