Inside the briefing: From establishing education as the key to sustainable development to unveiling compelling pathways for inspiring global action - all for a thriving future!
With July 2023 being officially declared as the hottest month on record, UN Secretary-General António Guterres warned that “the era of global warming has ended” and “the era of global boiling has arrived.” To adapt to this alarming reality, IPCC AR6 Synthesis Report: Climate Change 2023 suggests transitioning towards low-carbon systems. However, such a transition would entail creating opportunities for upskilling, reskilling, and ensuring the integration of green skills in education for the future. According to the Future of Jobs Report 2023, the strongest net job-creation effect will be driven by investments that facilitate the green transition of businesses, the broader application of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards, and supply chains becoming more localized.
In line with this, last week, we asked our readers about the skills they believe the education system is prioritizing for sustainable jobs in the future. 50% of respondents voted in favor of futuristic problem-solving, while the remaining were evenly split between developing leadership skills and becoming an accomplished motivator respectively.
As we prepare young people to address the challenges of today and tomorrow, how do you think we can best equip our students with the skills they need to tackle such crises? What are some of your effective strategies in this context?
