Providing Digital Skills to Youth for Decent Jobs
ITU is leading the joint ITU-ILO “Digital Skills for Decent Jobs for Youth Campaign” to train 5 million young people globally with job-ready digital skills by 2030. The objective is to connect young women and men with the job opportunities offered by the digital economy.

The program will also enable teachers to provide young people with new skills by introducing computational thinking and coding into school curriculum and non-formal training programs.
Digital entrepreneurship will focus on digital skills required by entrepreneurs. It will cover topics such as online market research, strategic planning and business analysis, using financing and crowdfunding platforms, online marketing, online networking, and establishing mentoring relationships.
