Why Join Our UN SDG Project?

I believe that the only way we can create A WORLD WE ALL WANT is for industry and educators to reimagine how they can work together to develop skills. Our world is moving at a pace never seen before in human history. In my series of articles, I explore the need to develop skills in a world that is volatile, uncertain, complex, and uncertain (VUCA). There are skills that will be needed in the coming 24-36 months, for technologies that do not yet exist today. We are in the Decade of Action for the UN SDGs, while living in a VUCA World. This is not a time to sit back; this is a time to step up and make a difference. SDG4 – Quality Education for All – speaks directly to my passion for this shift in skills development.

I invite you to read my series of articles, in which I’ll present a new way of thinking about technical and vocational education and training (TVET), in a VUCA World!
