At the OECD, we can help young people to make sense of the public debates on jobs and learning. Through this platform, our goal is to give you the tools to understand these issues and the means to contribute to the conversation.

We know it’s a tough world out there and you probably have a lot of questions,
so we’ve compiled some important resources for you on work and learning.
First, let’s take a look at how the world of work is changing around us at the moment and what this means for you…
What skills will you need to have the career and life you want? How can you develop skills for jobs that don’t exist yet? Here’s what we know about learning and education…
Those first few years on the career ladder can be tricky. What can you expect and how can you prepare for this journey?
Youthwise, the first youth advisory board of its kind at the OECD, was formed in 2021 to bring the youth perspective to OECD work. The board explored many areas of work across the OECD at all levels, with Youthwise members sharing their views on the new Youth Action Plan, the updated OECD Vision Statement. Following the success of the first year, the second cohort of Youthwise was selected in February 2022, with a focus on how we can build an inclusive and green future for & with young people. For more information on the Youthwise programme, the first cohort, and this year's members and activities, check out the dedicated Youthwise space.
This new initiative is part of the I am the Future of Work campaign, which we launched in 2019 to explore the impact on people’s lives of the major shifts taking place in the world of work. This consultation follows on from the Future of Work Roadshow event series, which was put on hold due to the pandemic.
