About the event

According to the ILO, a just transition to a greener economy could create 24 million new jobs globally by 2030. Seizing these opportunities for youth will require rapid upskilling through changes in higher education and expansion of corporate training programs. Many Southeast Asian countries are leading the way in this area and offer lessons for all of us to expand climate action (SDG 11) and the potential of green jobs to accelerate progress towards employment for all (SDG 8).
