UNGA74: Future of Work for Youth: Strategic Partnerships for Youth Employment, 23 September

On the sidelines of the opening of the United Nations General Assembly 74th session, the ILO Office for the United Nations, together with the Russia Mission to the UN, LUKOIL, and the Russian Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, will co-host the event “Future of Work for Youth: Strategic Partnerships for Youth Employment” on September 23th from 6-7:15 p.m.

The high-level event will showcase the role of public-private partnerships in promoting and facilitating a human centred agenda with the focus on youth employment and innovative measures supporting decent jobs for youth. The ILO-LUKOIL Public Private initiative on “Partnerships for Youth Employment in the CIS” is an important effort to secure coherence and connection between education, skills development and employment policies.

The agenda will include an opening segment, a high-level panel on “Strategic Partnerships for Youth Employment” and an interactive discussion to share the wealth of experience from different actors in society. A young leader from Kyrgyzstan will deliver closing remarks on behalf of young people. A reception will follow the event.
