Skills and lifelong learning are essential for economies to prosper, individuals to thrive and access decent work, and societies and communities to grow fairer and more resilient. Continuously skilling, reskilling and upskilling people of all ages provides immense value to society and helps to overcome social, environmental, and economic disruptions.

The Global Skills Forum brings together representatives from around the world to take part in a conversation about how to shape skills development in our ever-changing economies and societies.
