Jobs for the next 1 Billion
The world is facing a reskilling emergency.
More than 1 billion jobs, almost one-third of all jobs worldwide, are likely to be transformed by technology in the next decade, according to OECD estimates. By just 2022, the World Economic Forum estimates 133 million new jobs in major economies will be created to meet the demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
At the same time, economic and demographic shifts are putting additional pressure on the workforces of today. As we enter a new decade, one that the United Nations and others have called the “decade of delivery” for important transitions to a more sustainable world, we must also focus on achieving equitable, inclusive progress to equip and enable the world’s people to thrive in the jobs of the future.
Education & SKILLS for the next 1 Billion
We are building a movement of leaders who will eliminate educational inequity in India.
The education crisis runs wide and deep. 116 million of the poorest children live in India. 55% of ten-year-olds in India cannot read basic text. 75% will not go on to college. Most of those who do are not fully equipped for life. The pandemic has exacerbated this education crisis. We need to act now.
Share your skills and contribute towards educational equity.
