WorldSkills: keeping moving during a global pandemic


17 June 2020 at 12:00 (GMT)

The first talk was the starting point for a series of regular WorldSkills Talks in 2020. Our overarching goal was to ensure that young professional's voices were being heard. This talk gave detailed real-life stories as well as a sense of the personal situations and challenges of young professionals, so that the experts and the audience in general could learn from them.

We also wanted to give different stakeholders in the field the chance to discuss and present their views on the current challenges caused by the global pandemic.

This session had a parallel session at the end of the series on World Youth Skills Day (15 July).
