Designing skills pathways for local challenges


24 August 2019 at 11:00 in Room 1, Room 2, and Room 3

Global challenges unite the international community, creating the need for collective action and international standards. However, successful solutions for our most pressing challenges will require us to take into account regional, national, and local realities. During this workshop, we summarize trends and challenges within three tracks: economy, society, and environment. Participants will exchange views on what skills, best practices, and solutions they need for their specific regions to meet demands and close their skills gap. In this workshop, Dmitry Zabirov from the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, will guide participants through a discussion on how a transition to a greener economy can bring solutions to environmental challenges posed for each region, while creating job opportunities relevant to local labour markets.
