In January 2019, we launched The Global Alliance for Youth in Davos, in the context of the World Economic Forum. During the Davos week, The Alliance for Youth was launched towards a global audience through an executives’ panel conversation streamed on Facebook live. This event gave viewers the chance to interact directly with industry leaders and contribute thought leadership to the future of youth employment. On top of that, The Global Alliance for YOUth announced its global ambition during a World Economic Forum Press Conference, on January 24, 2019.
For Davos 2020, we want to drive further engagement with youth together with the Alliance members. For that reason, we have developed a communication concept: #turnthetable. The objective is to connect with youth around the world to better understand their needs and concerns regarding the current and future of work challenges. We ambition to kick-off this new chapter with the release of a suite of tools that will provide youth with: a platform that will enable direct access to industry leaders plus valuable tips and support towards boosting employability competitiveness.
