From Poverty To Prosperity: Engaging The Next Generation
Thu, March 31, 2011; 09:00 - 10:30
Global youth will demand a billion new jobs when they come of age. Yet for many marginalised or out-of-school youth, traditional routes to employment and entrepreneurship are closed. In the developing world, students with access to education face outdated curricula, limited access to new technologies and few connections to the marketplace. This session will discuss new approaches in creating a smooth school to-work transition for youth including what skills are needed today, how to foster innovation, and how to engage and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and employers.
