7th ADB International Skills Forum: Anticipating and Preparing for Emerging Skills and Jobs

9
12 December 2017 to 14 December 2017

How do education and training systems respond to the rapid changes in technology? How will education and training transform to help equip future workers to co-exist with and manage machines in creating new opportunities? 

The 7th ADB International Skills Forum: Anticipating and Preparing for Emerging Skills and Jobs will take a holistic approach to different types of skills that employers are looking for and how the education and training systems are responding to rapidly changing requirements in light of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The Forum will gather policymakers, practitioners, and experts to discuss how rapid changes in technology, urbanization and demographics is impacting skills and jobs, and how education and training systems are responding to such changes.

The forum aims to:

  • showcase transformational practices to equip the youth with employable life skills;
  • invite representatives from government, private sector, and other partners involved in education and training to showcase innovative good practices; and
  • inspire experts and developing member countries’ counterparts, and promote collaboration with key stakeholders to incorporate new approaches to design and implement innovative projects and programs in education and training.
