The inaugural World Youth Skills Day was celebrated on 15 July, 2015 with fanfare around the world. Along with various national and regional skill organizations, as well as governmental and non-governmental agencies, WorldSkills was proud to celebrate the first-ever day dedicated to focusing global attention on the relevance and critical importance of skills and youth development as a tool to benefit economies and societies.
WorldSkills launched a campaign lead by Simon Bartley, President of WorldSkills, on 15 July, 2015. In his video message, Simon called on the WorldSkills community to share a “Day in the Life” of a Competitor or a young skilled professional. We are pleased to present a selection of the wonderful entries we received; view them on YouTube or at the end of this page. Thank you to all the WorldSkills community who joined us in this celebration.
