IsDB-ILO Youth Green Skills Accelerator Challenge Call – From crises to resilience: Empowering Youth for a Greener Future

In recognition of the need to empower young people to advocate for green economies and societies, even in the context of disasters, and to transform their activism, dedication, and creativity into tangible actions, IsDB and ILO are organizing the second edition of the "IsDB-ILO Youth Green Skills Accelerator Challenge Call 2023: From Crises to Resilience: Empowering Youth for a Greener Future." The main goal of this call is to foster youth engagement and equip them with essential skills for green jobs, helping communities recover and thrive in the face of crises.


IsDB and ILO are organising a dynamic side event to take place at the IsDB Pavilion during COP 28. This event will serve as a platform to announce the distinguished winners of the 2023 IsDB-ILO Skills Challenge Call and celebrate the leadership and innovation of young people in the fight against climate change.

The event's agenda will include keynote addresses from distinguished representatives of IsDB and ILO. It will also feature a formal presentation of the three winning organizations and their proposals, followed by a panel of jurors who will assess and rank the competition's first, second, and third place recipients. The event will end in an official awards ceremony where the prizes will be presented to the respective winner organisations.
