Our programme, which is developed under the strategic leadership of the WorldSkills Conference Coalition, will discuss first the challenges, and megatrends, that we face in our societies throughout the world. These range from the negative like economic shocks and climate change, to the positive like technological transformation. The subsequent sessions will examine the solutions and advantages that skills offer to these megatrends, in the context of the fourth Industrial Revolution and climate change, and how skills will be integral to a better future for us all.
