The Global Skills Academy (GSA), a mission launched by UNESCO on World Youth Skills Day in July 2020 with the aim to help one million young people build skills for employability and resilience by June 2021, is making promising progress around the world. The Academy has so far reached around 70,000 participants, of which 38% are women, in 23 countries.
Under the umbrella of the Global Education Coalition, the GSA offers high-quality free online trainings to respond to the growing consequences of COVID-19 on skills development and youth employment around the world, with a priority focus on the least developed countries. Women, young people and non-formal workers are among those who have been affected the most by the crisis, which has resulted in economic recession and unprecedented disruptions in the labour market and halted skills development. Worldwide, UNESCO estimates that more than 300,000,000 students remain affected by school closures.
Equitable Education Alliance (EEA) is a community of practice for organizations; ministries, agencies and NGO’s who strives to push for a more inclusive and equitable educational system while enhancing the performance of existing equitable education organizations at all levels
