Why the world needs to upskill young people to enable the net zero transition
This report offers a way forward for governments, businesses and youth as we set out to address how upskilling enables young people to equitably access employment opportunities created by the climate transition. Global youth skilling is an issue that is vital to determining whether the world can transition to net zero in time. The transition requires a transformation in the kinds of jobs that exist in the economy. That requires upskilling at scale or the world will face severe bottlenecks which act as a brake on decarbonisation and climate resilience.
