“Due to the influence of unprecedented pace of technological advancement and the need to mitigate and adapt to the climate change and biodiversity collapse crises, a significant proportion of the jobs of the future, will be never-seen-before jobs in the spectrum of the green and digital transformation. How do we engage the society in this transformation? How do we equip the labor force and especially the youth, with the knowledge and skills needed?”
