Youth Employability: Stay Ahead of the Curve
About YouthSpeak Forum
YouthSpeak Forum powered by AIESEC is an event run by youth for youth. It is a forum where inspiration and collaboration convert into action. This event brings together both young and senior leaders to form a diverse cross-sector and multigenerational space for inspiring conversations around pressing global, national and local issues.
This year’s edition of Youth Speak Forum will be 100% virtual, making it available and safe to attend for anyone, anywhere. Nevertheless, we guarantee you that it will be just as inspiring and packed with amazing guest speakers as the years before! We are really looking forward to seeing you all there on Saturday, July 10th from 9 am to 5 pm. Attend the Sessions you like!
Theme of the Event
Young people represent around one fifth of the world’s population, but half of the total unemployed global workforce. Youth, defined as persons between 15 and 24 years of age, comprise some 89 million of the total of 192 million people out of work which is why our Theme for YouthSpeak Forum is Youth Employability.
For every young person, a job offering decent work is an important step in completing the transition to adulthood, a milestone towards independence and self-reliance. Attend YouthSpeak Forum 2021 to Stay Ahead of the Curve.
