Organized by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) in partnership with BuildSkills Academy, this event delves into emerging trends and resilient solutions in education for sustainable development among youth and professionals moving towards gainful employment, professional development, and vocational training. 

Upskilling is imperative in lifelong learning, equipping the youth and professionals with the knowledge, competencies, and values to respond to sustainable development challenges in all growing industries. Discussions will spotlight policies and practices aimed at promoting informed educational decision-making and exploring the pivotal role of vocational education and professional training in facilitating transitions to employment. 

The implementation of such pathways require diverse partnerships and expertise to work alongside policymakers for more effective and localized outcomes. A cross-sectoral panel will provide a comprehensive examination of interconnected issues related to education, employment, stressing the importance of policy measures, intersectoral partnerships, and strategic investments. 

Additionally, the panel envisions collaborative efforts among educators and practitioners across governmental, corporate, and civil society sectors, equipping them with relevant educational content and training to actively contribute to sustainable development through workforce participation.
