Creating Futures
Format: Interactive Panel and Q&A

Articulating the key issues facing contemporary education and employment around the world. 
As a prerequisite for most employment, education has the power to transform young people’s lives and livelihoods.The availability and quality of education that young people receive can vastly impact their success in transitioning from learners to valued employees. Yet in many contexts there is a disconnect between the two sectors, and underrepresented groups face unique difficulties. This session will set out how these challenges are being overcome to facilitate smooth transition from education to work for all, drawing on global best practice and solutions, to create positive futures for young people.
