In a world full of changes and challenges, we are at the cusp of a unique opportunity to cultivate diversity, adaptability, and resilience. Acquiring and honing a 21st-century skill set is a central pursuit to flourish, not just survive. Today’s youth have the power to influence the world in which they will grow and which they will bequeath to future generations. It’s time to leverage the skills of the youth to enforce a collective effort for a lasting positive change. We look towards the youth of Asia as the largest cohort of global youth, and the next destination for the WorldSkills Conference (in Shanghai in 2021). What can we learn about where we are going, from the way that they engage with the world?
