OECD Youth Week 2021

Virtual Live

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) organises a full week of high-level discussions with international speakers on the many aspects of post-Covid life and work for the younger generations.

Acknowledging fully that the COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated the difficulties for many young people in finding a job, maintaining quality of life and getting the best out of education, the OECD Youth Week will touch also on the topic of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and how Covid-19 has affected their well-being and exacerbated the growing digital divide.

With an opening session with the provocative title “Prepared for the future?” this series of online conferences will deal with various topics and feature a number of workshops and a series of main events:

  • Youth consultation on the building blocks of the upcoming OECD Youth Recommendation
  • Investing in Youth 
  • Youth and Democracy in Times of Crisis
  • Stand by Youth: How can businesses mobilise young entrepreneurs for the recovery? 
  • Developing skills at work: Apprenticeship as an attractive pathway for youth
  • Getting a job: How schools can help students develop recruitment skills 
  • What Generation Z thinks about school, the curriculum and their future
  • From City Halls to City Streets: How Local Leaders and Practitioners are Helping Young People in the COVID-19 Era?

All the sessions are recorded and will be available for viewing.
