Youngsters, aged between 15 and 24 years, are especially suffering due to the social and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Permanent Missions of Sri Lanka and Portugal to the UN, UNESCO, ILO, and the Office of the Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth are jointly organising a virtual event this World Youth Skills Day to offer an opportunity to throw light on the skills that youngsters need in the present time and for the future.

Participants [of the virtual event] will take stock of how technical and vocational education and training (TVET) systems have adapted to the pandemic and recession, think of how those systems can participate in the recovery, and imagine priorities they should adopt for the post-COVID-19-world," said UN.

The TVET sector helps in addressing various economic, and social demands by helping youngsters acquire the skills they require for work. This in turn promotes equitable, inclusive and sustainable economic growth. But the crisis unleashed by the virus has adversely affected all these positives by harming the learning and training of youngsters. As countries roll out vaccines, there is a long road ahead of the TVET sector before it recovers from the effects of the pandemic crisis.
