Digital Skills Toolkit for youth


ITU Digital Skills Toolkit“[The toolkit] addresses the many complexities of devising and advancing digital skills at policy level. It maps out how digital skills take their place within a wider framework of soft, twenty-first century skills. It offers clear guidance on bringing together – and leading – different stakeholders and moving forward under one clear and focused framework. The toolkit’s outstanding strength is its hands-on, how-to practicality and its grounding in experience from around the world. In addition to offering tools that convert complexity to manageable tasks, the toolkit brims with real-life examples of ambitious projects and programmes that impress and inspire.” Brahima Sanou, Director, ITU Telecommunications Development Bureau
The International Labor Organization (ILO) estimates that there are 66,6 million young people unemployed. The digital economy has created a huge shortage of people with the necessary digital skills. ITU research shows that there will be tens of millions of jobs for people with advanced digital skills in the coming years.

As part of its commitment to the Decent Jobs for Youth Initiative to tackle the youth unemployment challenge and as the lead of the Digital Skills thematic priority, ITU has developed a Digital Skills toolkit to provide stakeholders with guidance on developing a national digital skills strategy. It is intended for policy makers, partners in the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and academia.
 
The toolkit is to be used as a roadmap to develop a comprehensive digital skills strategy or as a guide to focus on one specific priority.

2018 Global Youth Climate Video Competition Open for Applications

plications
Bonn, UN Climate Change News, 8 May 2018 – Youth from all over the world can apply until the 31st of August for the 2018 Global Youth Video Competition. The initiative, which is in its 4th edition, aims to highlight, through videos, climate action being taken by youth.
Two participants will be selected as winners to attend the Conference of Parties (COP 24) in Katowice, Poland, in December 2018. At the Conference, the videos will be showcased in front of a global audience and the winners will have the opportunity to work with UN Climate Change’s communications team covering highlights of the meeting.
UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa said: “Today’s youth are different than any generation that has come before. Since birth, they have learned words such as global warming, melting glaciers, sea rise and extreme weather. But they have also heard words such as electric cars, wind farms, renewable energy, the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement. Youth are important agents of change, who are key to accelerating climate action. Youth have the influence, and they have the numbers.”
To participate in the competition, it is necessary to be between 18 and 30 years of age and submit a maximum 3-minute video on “responsible production and consumption” or “green and climate-friendly jobs”.
Examples for the category ‘responsible production and consumption’ can include videos on initiatives to reduce unnecessary consumption, decrease emissions during the lifecycle of goods, promote sustainable fashion, or encourage the sharing economy and reuse of goods and materials. As for the category ‘green and climate friendly jobs’, submissions can include videos on work or entrepreneurship that contributes to a healthy economy and addresses climate change.
A judging panel including representatives from the Global Environment Facility-United Nations Development Programme Small Grants Programme, UN Climate Change, and tve will pre-select a short list of videos based on the criteria of content, innovation, originality impact, and technical expertise. Pre-selected videos will then be posted online to be voted on by the public.
The 2018 edition of the Global Youth Video Competition is co-organized by UN Climate Change, GEF-UNDP SGP and Connect4Climate, with support from BNP Paribas Foundation and the constituency of youth non-governmental organizations (YOUNGO). The competition will be implemented through the Television for Environment (tve) platform.
