YouthForesight Community Forum

The YouthForesight Community Forum is a virtual space for ILO colleagues, Decent Jobs for Youth partners, practitioners, and other stakeholders working on youth employment to connect, discuss, share knowledge and engagement opportunities on young people’s education and skilling, employment, entrepreneurship, and engagement. The forum is co-hosted by the ILO-led Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth and Generation Unlimited. It features demand-driven thematic groups and topics, which will grow subject to demand and the thematic priorities of partners.
