WorldSkills is inviting you to celebrate World Youth Skills Day (WYSD) on 15 July 2016!
We are requesting the WorldSkills community join together to celebrate and promote WYSD, demonstrating the reach of our global community. By hosting your own local event or activities, and sharing our #SkillsRuleTheWorld campaign with your supporters, each of you can help bring global awareness to this important day.
Following the recognition last year by the United Nations of WYSD, WorldSkills will join the organizations of the United Nations and other international and regional organizations, to raise awareness on promoting skills as a means to address the challenges of unemployment and under employment. We are delighted to support Members and partner activities including the WorldSkills Africa Skills Forum in Zambia, Community Plumbing Challenge in South Africa, and UNESCO TVET Forum in Germany.
