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.

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?
We recently ran a consultation on work and learning during the pandemic, in which more than 20 000 young people participated worldwide. If you took part – thank you! Your perspectives and experiences will help policy makers understand how the COVID-19 crisis has affected your lives. The results will be published later this year, so watch this space for updates.
Youthwise, the first youth advisory board of its kind at the OECD, was formed in April 2021. Delegates are already working with OECD experts and country ambassadors to bring the youth perspective to OECD work. For more information, see 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.
