UNAI Quiz: World Youth Skills Day

15 July is World Youth Skills Day, a day to encourage youth to celebrate the value of acquiring skills like building, making, and creating as a way to achieve personal success and fulfillment!

Young people are almost three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and continuously exposed to lower quality jobs, greater labour market inequalities, and longer and more insecure school-to-work transitions. In addition, women are more likely to be underemployed and under-paid, and to undertake part-time jobs or work under temporary contracts.

To raise awareness of the importance of investing in youth skills development, UNESCO-UNEVOC launched #SkillsForAll, a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of job skills for youth. Skills and jobs for youth feature prominently in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and SDG 4 target 4.4 calls for a substantial increase in the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills.
