It provides a detailed account of the conversations and knowledge exchange that took place at the conference in Columbia - which was held in October last year. 

About 650 people attended the conference including 50 mayors.  

Adaptability – another crucial soft skill

In June this year UK’s Learning and Work Institute announced the findings of a new Youth Commission report, Tomorrow’s world: Future of the Labour Market:

“It finds that the UK’s 2030 workforce is likely to be more diverse, with more women and disabled people in work, and a growth in the number of people with caring responsibilities. Self-employment in areas such as the gig economy is likely to grow too, and rising demand for skills means young people without good qualifications could struggle to find work or build a career.”
